India Getting 50 MW Tidal Power Project

india-tidal
Asia's first commercial scale tidal power project is being built off the buy generic propecia online coast of India.  The project will initially have a capacity of 50 MW, but could eventually be scaled up to well over 200 MW.

London-based Atlantis Resources, the company responsible for the world's largest tidal turbine located in Scotland, is building the project in the Gulf of Kutch.  Construction is planned to cheap tramadol overseas pharmacy start as soon as this year and best canadian pharmacy should be completed by 2013.

A recent survey by Atlantis shows that the gulf has about 300 MW-worth of potential tidal power and the construction agreement between the company and India's Gujarat Power Corporation Ltd. allows for up to 250 MW to be developed there.

Tidal power is a strong, reliable and predictable source of renewable energy, but it hasn't been harvested as much as solar or wind power, mainly because of its high initial costs.  But it's starting to get more attention -- tidal turbines have been installed in rivers in both New York City and Paris and huge tidal power projects are being developed off of cialis england Scotland's coast.

@Cinz - Tides are not predictable!!!

It is not only the tides which are predictable. Sadly for this project, the predictability of India's corruption will ensure that this project either fails to materialize or the wheels will fall off a short time later as a result of shoddy materials.

Good luck with this one!

while its true that indian politics is cheap generic india viagra massive blob of corrupt officials, the chief minster of this state has a reputation of being one of the least corrupt in the country, and has been delivering on buy cialis in new zealand various development projects in the state.

Having said that, I dont completely rule out corruption. Let this materialize along with the solar parks that he is going to be developing in the northern arid regions of best online generic levitra the state, before we cry wolf.

Still an interesting project

While most folks agree that this is another avenue for the politically corrupt of India to use, from an environmental and ecological standpoint, there is value. While tidal waves are not predictable...as some may suggest, there is a range of high and low tidal wave activity which can be used as a benchmark for doing the due diligence in feasibility studies. It would be interesting to see if those studies were even done and the results.
