Scotrenewables update

A tweet from Scotrenewables claims 20MW output over 24 hours.  With a 2MW device, that equates to a capacity factor of 20/(24*2) = 41.7% over the period.

The period was September 21/22, when the moon was new and tides were therefore at their springiest - especially as it's around the autumn equinox, when springs are at their springiest.

But either way, a capacity factor of better than 40% is comparable with offshore wind.
