Shetland turbines deliver electricity in 'world first'

Turbines installed off the coast of Shetland could herald a "new era" in tidal energy, according to the company running the project.

Tidal energy specialist Nova Innovation said they were the first offshore tidal turbines in the world to deliver electricity to the grid.

Two 100kW turbines have been installed so far in the Shetland Tidal Array at Bluemull Sound.
