Atlantic Elm to retrieve tidal turbine

1. Atlantic Elm at Woodside in 2008

Atlantic Elm is due to tow the barge Open Hydro Installer from Halifax to a position near Parrsboro, NS to retrieve a tidal turbine. The experimental turbine was lowered to the seabed by the same barge last year as part of a pilot project to use the Bay of Fundy's tides to generate electricity.

The turbine was damaged at some point and will be raised by the special lifting gear on the barge and returned to Halifax for repairs.

Atlantic Elm has been kept busy this summer with northern supply work.
