The Scottish government has approved plans for ‘the world’s largest tidal scheme’, which could help to create new engineering jobs for Scotland.

ScottishPower Renewables can now commence construction work on the £40 million project in the Sound of Islay. The scheme will have a ten-megawatt capacity – enough to power over 5,000 homes.

ScottishPower Renewables will also work closely with the Islay Energy Trust to provide social and economic benefits in the area, including using local marine contractors during installation and providing local jobs in construction during the onshore development phase.
