More delays for huge tidal turbine
There’s another hangup in getting one of Cape Sharp Tidal’s massive turbines into the water in Minas Passage.
The 320 tonne tubine is sitting on a barge in Saint John Harbour needing repairs. It arrived on a specially designed barge from Halifax nearly three weeks ago but Saint John doesn’t have a crane large enough to lift it. The company is now asking Ottawa to allow it to bring in a non-Canadian ship with a crane large enough to handle the giant turbine.
