A floating tidal power station. I like this idea, it can be floated in just 3m of water and the turbines can be raised for maintenance.

An interesting development, but at what stage is this project ?
The report linked to is from 2019.
"Installers and owners of emergency diesels must assume that they will have to run for a week or more"
