Scotland: The world’s most powerful turbine generating turbines has begun production. The beautifully designed turbine weighs 680 tons and will supply electricity to 2,000 homes over the next 15 years.
Located off the coast of Scotland, this tidal turbine has been dubbed the Orbital O2, which has been under research for ten years and took 18 months to fully prepare and install. Due to its unusual structure, it generates two megawatts of electricity, which was launched into the sea in May and is now supplied with electricity from the turbine after the installation of the underwater cable.
The movement of the waves lifts its internal system up and down and generates electricity by acting as a turbine.
When the waves slow down, its petals turn and start generating electricity, and obviously, this is possible only due to the strong winds of the sea. It was designed by a company called Orbital O2.
According to the company, this is a very encouraging project to generate eco-friendly electricity which could benefit the whole world as 70% of the land area is covered by the sea.
It can also be called a type of underwater turbine that operates under the waves of the ocean waves. Iron chains have been installed at four places to support it.
