Project Details The focus for the Half-Moon Cove project has been placed on the investigation of a tidal barrage to generate electricity by retaining the waters of Half-Moon Cove for the development of potential energy and subsequent extraction of kinetic energy through the use of reversible turbines. Hydrokinetic devices have been considered in combination with a tidal barrage mode of operation and also as a separate source of energy.
