N.Y. Tests Turbines to Produce Power
Saturday, September 20, 2008;
NEW YORK — On a recent morning, a crane sank a 16-foot rotor into the
waters of the East River and divers swam deep to bolt it to the bottom.
By early evening, as the northerly current sped up, the rotor began to
spin, a big thunk sounded in the control room, a green light went on,
and electricity began to pour into a nearby supermarket.
