Tidal Power

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what progress has been made with Pulse Tidal’s Humber tidal stream energy test project; and if he will make a statement. (208501)

On 7 April 2008, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State granted consent under the Transport and Works Act 1992 to Pulse Tidal Ltd. for their prototype tidal stream generator at Upper Burcom on the River Humber. Although construction and operation of the device is now a matter for Pulse Tidal to take forward, I understand that construction of the device has begun.
