f40m tidal power bid

IRISH renewable-energy firm OpenHydro is to build four 16m-high tidal turbines off the French coast.

The first installation is part of a €40m project which will create the world's largest tidal-energy generator.

The turbines, off the island of Brehat, each have the capacity to generate enough energy to power 1,000 homes.
