Full power for Atlantis at MeyGen
1.5MW Andritz Hydro Hammerfest tidal turbine hits optimal output
Atlantis Resources reports that the 1.5MW Andritz Hydro Hammerfest turbine is operating at full power at its MeyGen tidal energy project in the Pentland Firth off the north coast of Scotland.
The company said operation at full power is significant as it “allows for validation of the power curve models which underpin the financial assumptions of the project”.
MeyGen project director David Taaffe said: “It is extremely satisfying to see all of the meticulous planning and preparation come to life and be validated in the field.
“This will be one of many milestones to come as we now build on this successful start and continue to roll out the world’s largest tidal power array.”
