SIMEC Atlantis Energy Limited (LON:SAE) has announced its ambition to create the world’s first ocean-powered data centre in the north of Scotland. The plan is to supply electricity to a “hyperscale” operation in the Caithness area from its MeyGen tidal operation in the Pentland Firth. Currently boasting a 6 megawatt (MW) operational array, which has now generated more than 20,000MWh of electricity for export to the grid, there is the potential to expand MeyGen to 80MW. The giant server farm is being targeted to go live by 2024 and would be connected to international subsea fibre optic cables connecting to London, Europe and the US.
