Renewables specialist Simec Atlantis Energy has strengthened its relationship with US energy giant General Electric (GE) in a deal the Edinburgh-based firm says will help deliver low-cost tidal power. Atlantis, which is behind the MeyGen tidal energy scheme in the Pentland Firth and has offices in Fountainbridge in the Scottish capital, said its Turbine and Engineering Services Division (ATES) will enter into a technology partnership and preferred supplier agreement with GE’s Power Conversion business, which it said is a global leader in its field. “With their abundant experience in tidal stream turbine development and power conversion, the two parties will work jointly to help achieve efficient, sustainable solutions for the delivery of low-cost tidal power,” Atlantis said. The duo will share resources for the ongoing development of utility scale tidal energy generation and associated energy storage services. They will also jointly promote their “innovative” new subsea connection technologies and the wider benefits of cleaner, predictable tidal energy.
