MeyGen Operation & Production Update


Atlantis, a global leader in the marine power generation sector, provides an operational update for Phase 1A of the MeyGen project in the Pentland Firth. Total production has now surpassed 2.6GWh with over 800MWh of predictable energy dispatched to grid during the month of September.

The Atlantis supplied 1.5MW AR1500 turbine has been successfully reinstalled over the weekend and has commenced its commissioning procedures. With the reinstallation of the fourth and final turbine, MeyGen Phase 1A will now be capable of operating at its full 6 MW capacity generating full ROC and power revenues.

The offshore works were successfully, safely and efficiently executed by the Atlantis offshore operations team using the Olympic Challenger.

With this latest achievement, all four Phase 1A turbines now have been successfully reconnected to the grid. Following final completion testing, MeyGen Phase 1A is expected to formally complete its construction phase and enter into its 25-year operational phase within the coming weeks.
