The MeyGen tidal energy project in Scotland generated 700MWh of clean power during August – a world record for a tidal stream power station – developers Atlantis Resources revealed today. The company said power production of its flagship Pentland Firth tidal energy array had been “strong”, with generation now approaching 2GWh in total since the launch of the project last year. It also said the first three Andritz Hydro Hammerfest turbines in the array had now been successfully upgraded, reinstalled on the seabed and reconnected to the grid, paving the way for further power generation records in the months to come.

Underwater turbines in the Pentland Firth have set a new world record, according to developer Atlantis Resources. Two tidal turbines generated enough electricity to power 2000 homes last month, they said. Atlantis intends to install 269 turbines in the strait between Orkney and Caithness. They will be capable of generating 398 megawatts of renewable energy and power 175,000 houses, it is claimed.
