In a statement, Atlantis, which is developing the 6MW MeyGen Phase 1A and Phase 1B ‘Project Stroma’ in Scotland’s Pentland Firth, said it would “offer potential investors an interest in a unique portfolio of tidal power projects.”
Atlantis said its portfolio of Scottish tidal power projects currently includes the 398MW MeyGen, 100MW Brough Ness, 30MW Mull of Galloway and 8MW Kyle Rhea, adding it has ambitions to grow this portfolio in the near future.
