Project Details Tidal Energy Limited is installing a single DeltaStream unit off the coast of Pembrokeshire at Ramsey Sound for 12 months. The project will be used to demonstrate the capability of DeltaStream as a tidal stream generator and will provide evidence on how the device and environment interact.
