SIMEC Atlantis Energy says its MeyGen tidal turbine has now sent a record 17.5GWh of renewable electricity to the UK grid. The renewable energy project developer, owner and operator claims this eclipses the previous export record of approximately 11GWh and notes its MeyGen technology has exported more than 7GWh of clean power to the grid in 2019 alone, equivalent to the average annual electricity consumption of more than 2,200 households. It adds this year’s activities have generated £1.85 million of revenue and represent the longest period of uninterrupted generation from a multi-MW tidal turbine array ever achieved – total system availability so far this year sits at around 90% and reached as high as 98% during the second quarter.
