A tidal turbine described as the “most powerful” in the world has started generating energy off Orkney.

The O2 has the ability to create two megawatts of energy every year – potentially providing electricity to around 2000 homes.

The company behind the project, Orbital Marine Power, hailed a major step forward for the tidal sector in Scotland.
