Atlantis, owner of the world's largest planned tidal stream energy project, MeyGen, has been awarded a £7.5 million two year contract with the UK's Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) to deliver a multi-turbine foundation structure which will support a further two turbines at the Atlantis-owned MeyGen tidal stream array in the Pentland Firth, Scotland.

The agreement with ETI marks the start of Phase 2 of the ETI Tidal Energy Converter Project (TEC Phase 2). TEC Phase 2 will see two Atlantis-owned 1.5MW commercial tidal energy turbines installed on an innovative foundation structure designed and built as part of the ETI-funded project. The Project was negotiated separately to, and comes hot on the heels of, the Company's recently funded 6MW tidal turbine array at the MeyGen site.
It will increase the number of turbines at the site from four to six and the rated capacity of the tidal array from 6MW to 9MW, enough to power 4,500 local homes. TEC Phase 2 will run over three stages, commencing with detailed design, fabrication and installation of the innovative turbine foundation structure.
