An American tidal power company has announced plans to establish operations in Scotland.
ResHydro, a clean technology firm, said it plans to establish a base in Scotland where it will develop its hydrokinetic energy generation system. The device requires further research and development to take it closer to commercialisation.
The company will be supported by a £100,000 award from Scottish Enterprise and will work in partnership with the University of Strathclyde.
Samuel Lewinter, chief executive of ResHydro, said:
‘We are pleased to have the opportunity to open our Scottish subsidiary where we will have access to significant technical expertise and where market conditions will contribute to the most expeditious commercialisation of our technology.’
