The grant agreement has been signed with the European Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises via the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and its Sustainable Blue Economy.

On 30 October, Atlantis announced plans to enhance the existing 6 megawatt (MW) MeyGen project. In its statement today, the group said the grant will support the innovations required to take that project enhancement forward, with a specific focus on the turbine upgrades needed to utilise the subsea hub and shared export cable. 

Drew Blaxland, Director of Turbine and Engineering Services of SIMEC Atlantis Energy, commented: "The AR1500 turbine installed at the MeyGen project in 2017 marked the first commercial scale turbine installed in a tidal array.

“Following this successful deployment and record breaking operation of the AR1500 turbine we now look to the future and where opportunities to reduce the LCOE exist.”
