Default Utility-scale tidal "Kite" powerplant exporting to grid as of 9/2/2024

Minesto's fully operational grid connected currently exporting Dragon 12 looks like some sort of futuristic military drone but it behaves remarkably like a kite underwater. It uses lift generated by tidal flows to fly patterns faster than the currents, harvesting renewable energy. https://newatlas.com/energy/minesto-tidal-kite/

"The utility-scale tidal powerplant Dragon 12 rated at 1.2 MW has been successfully commissioned and, in the early morning of February 9, 2024, delivered its first electricity to the national grid in the Faroe Islands."
