Project Details The PS100 began generating electricity in May 2009. It is grid-ties and is exporting power to Millenium Chemicals, a large plant on the South bank of the estuary. Funded through the UK Governments technology program, the project has researched and developed a 100 kW prototype Pulse Hydrofoil, which is planned for deployment in 2008. The UK Secretary of State for Energy, John Hutton, granted planning permission for the deployment of a prototype Pulse Stream Tidal power generator at Stallingborough, close to Immingham in the Humber estuary during April 2008. The generator will feed power ashore directly to a large chemicals works. Pulse Tidal deployed prototype in September 2008.
