Nova Innovation has won funding from Innovate UK that could help deliver the first ever tidal turbine array in Indonesia. Innovate UK has awarded £200,000 to Nova’s Larantuka and Indonesian Tidal Energy project that will deliver a feasibility study for a 7MW tidal array in the Larantuka Strait.

Larantuka Strait lies between the islands of Flores and Adonara and has one of the strongest tidal currents in Indonesia, Nova said. The array would utilise the next generation 100kW tidal turbines.

Flite is the first Asian project for Scotland-based Nova Innovation, which has teamed up with Indonesian University ITS (itut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember) to deliver the work. Nova will partner with ITS to conduct on-site technical and socio-economic research supporting the business case for the tidal array.
