Further tidal power survey work in Alderney

Alderney's Braye Harbour The sea around Alderney has been described as very favourable and accessible for tidal resources

The second phase of seabed survey work ahead of developing tidal power around Alderney is due to start.

The first phase, completed in March, showed the Alderney South Bank is formed from large sand waves some measuring 25m from crest to trough.

The second stage is due to include seabed sampling and a camera survey.

Richard Bean, project manager for Alderney Renewable Energy (ARE), said they were close to decisions on the final turbine design.

He said: "We're moving very much out of the concept development phase into more of a realistic project phase."
