MeyGen project records longest period of uninterrupted generation

Simec Atlantis Energy announced on 27 January that 2019 saw the longest period of uninterrupted generation from the 6MW MeyGen tidal array in the Pentland Firth. MeyGen exported over 13.8GWh of predictable renewable electricity in 2019, equivalent to the average annual electricity consumption of around 3,800 UK homes.

During 2019, Atlantis announced its intention to develop the next phase of the array, which will see an additional 80MW of tidal capacity added to the existing project site.

The tidal array’s private wire structure with the data centre will provide a route to market for the next phase of the project.
