Neil was a able to view the power generation plan in operation on a recent visit to the shore side site shown above, and was suitably impressed by progress remarking:

“I am sure you must be pleased with this initial performance and the test your plant recieved by being at sea during the 8.3m high waves from the Force 7 winds over the preceeding weekend. When I was there the sea-state was around 2.5m and the tubine was spinning well.”
