Developer redeploys two 1.5MW turbines at its MeyGen array in Pentland Firth

Simec Atlantis Energy has redeployed a pair of tidal turbines following modifications at its 6MW MeyGen array in the Pentland Firth off northern Scotland.

The developer hired the Swire Seabed Stringray vessel to install its AR1500 1.5MW machine and a single Andritz Hydro Mk1 unit, also rated at 1.5MW.

All four turbines are connected to the grid, the company said in a statement.
In a related development, Atlantis has concluded the sale of its remaining 50% interest in Atlantis Operations (Canada) Limited to Irish developer DP Energy for C$400,000.

Following completion, AOCL will be renamed to become Rio Fundo Operations Canada.

Atlantis said the sale would enable DP to “take a more integrated approach to the AOCL berth alongside its pre-existing wholly owned berth at the FORCE facility.”

Atlantis will focus on its UK, France and Asia interests, it added.
