MeyGen Phase 1A completes construction phase and officially enters 25 year operations phase

Atlantis, a global leader in the marine power generation sector, is proud to announce that Phase 1A of the MeyGen project has now completed the construction phase and has formally entered the 25 year operations phase.  At 6MW rated capacity, MeyGen is the world’s largest tidal stream array.

This achievement follows on from an extended period of array operation since the turbines were reinstalled in 2017. The array has generated approximately 6GWh of energy to date and in March set a new world record for monthly production from a tidal stream array, generating 1,400MWh.

The completion of the construction of Phase 1A combined with the ongoing production and reliability levels achieved help to progress the viability of tidal stream energy as a clean and predictable energy source.

Atlantis have an international portfolio of opportunities for further tidal array projects. The MeyGen project alone has 392MW of further development capacity, with consents and grid connection agreements in place to pave the way to exploit more of this potential.
