A Chinese developer has realized half of planned 3.4 mega-watt generating capacity of a tidal power station in the coastal city of Zhoushan in Zhejiang Province.
The generating unit built by Hangzhou Lin Dong Ocean Energy Technology Co. Ltd. is claimed to have realised a stable power supply. It has been powering the grid ever since the first unit was installed in May 2017.
Zhoushan is an archipelago and island city that has the largest fishery in China and boasts strong shipbuilding, tourism and service industries.
The previous record of tidal energy power generation was set in Britain with a four-month supply in 2015.
