The 39ft turbines were fitted with a sonar so they could be switched off if seals and dolphins wandered by, but the sonar developed a fault.

£18MILLION tidal energy scheme supposed to power 600 homes stops working after just three months

  • The taxpayer-funded DeltaStream project in Pembrokeshire in Wales, was designed to use the flow of the ocean with a 39ft turbine installed on the seabed
  • But the system developed a fault and stopped generating electricity weeks after
  • Tidal Energy Ltd has now gone into administration and is seeking a buyer
Dolphins and seals killed by coal: zero
