Company drops tidal test site at research facility in Bay of Fundy

HALIFAX - One of the companies with a berth to test tidal turbines at a research site in the Bay of Fundy is opening up its spot to other bidders.

The Nova Scotia government says Alstom has informed the province it is releasing its berth in order to focus on developing its technology in Scotland.

The remaining two berths at the federally and provincially supported Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy are held by Minas Energy and Atlantis Resources.

A fourth berth at the centre was vacated by Nova Scotia Power after its OpenHydro device was damaged in 2009 and later retrieved, but the province says OpenHydro is bidding to regain a spot.

The province also says there are two other bidders — Black Rock Tidal and Marine Energy Ltd. — competing to obtain one of the two open spots at the research centre.

The province says it will announce in March which two applicants will win the open berths at the centre.
