Minister announces tidal initiative

A seven year licence has been given to a local firm to explore the possibilities for harvesting tidal energy off the north coast.

Infrastructure Minister Phil Gawne says Manx Tidal Energy will assess the possibilities off the Point of Ayre.

Still to be taken into account are such features as the effect on fishing grounds, on shipping and on the environment.

Mr Gawne is encouraged.
