Siemens dedicates tidal power assembly plant in U.K.

Siemens opened its first tidal power assembly and production plant in the U.K., which will be used to build turbine units for deployment in Wales and Scotland.

The 25,000 square foot facility is located in Bristol and will produce SeaGen tidal turbines, which were developed by Marine Current Turbines. Siemens bought the majority interest in MCT in 2012.

The hydrokinetic turbines built in Bristol will initially be used for the 10 MW Skerries array in Wales and 8 MW Kyle Rhea array in Scotland — both of which are set for construction beginning in 2015.
