Objectives
Abstract Phase two of the ETI Tidal Energy Converter (TEC) project will see two Atlantis owned 1.5MW commercial tidal energy turbines installed on an innovative foundation structure designed and built as part of the project. This will take place at the MeyGen site in Scotland and increase the number of turbines at the site from four to six, increasing the rated capacity of the tidal array from 6MW to 9MW (enough to power 4,500 local homes). Atlantis are developing a patent-pending innovative and cost effective multi-turbine foundation design as a result of the work they undertook in the first phase of the project - a total system lifecycle cost of energy methodology to identify tidal energy system technologies capable of significantly reducing the cost of energy being deployed at array scale
