THE next stage of the MeyGen tidal energy project in the Pentland Firth will benefit from a partnership deal agreed by Simec Atlantis – the company behind the initiative – and General Electric. The two companies will work together on Project Stroma, the second phase of the development which will result in two Atlantis AR2000 turbines being installed in the Inner Sound. They will be connected by a new subsea hub to a single power export cable which will be linked to the MeyGen substation and on to the National Grid. Four demonstration turbines have already been installed.
