Portland Bill

Status: in Development

Portland Bill in Dorset is a promising site for tidal stream energy exploitation as it combines high tidal stream velocities around the headland with a location closer to population centers than other proposed sites in England. A 30MW site to the south of the Isle of Portland on the Dorset Coast, south of Weymouth, this project would deploy 24meter rotor diameter AR2000 turbines, each of which would be manufactured in Scotland.

We are investigating the development potential offered by the project however the timings would be subject to the passing of innovative power purchase agreement legislation.
