Atlantis, a global leader in the tidal power sector, is pleased to announce the award of €20.3m in Horizon 2020 grant funding from the European Commission for the DEMOTIDE project, which will design, build and operate a 6MW turbine array, MeyGen Phase 1B, in the Inner Sound of the Pentland Firth in northern Scotland.

MeyGen Phase 1B, also known as Project Stroma, will commence construction in 2017 and first power is expected in 2018. It will be built adjacent to the existing 6MW MeyGen Phase 1A project, which delivered first power to the grid in November last year. Together, Phases 1A and 1B complete the foundation for full scale build out at the site, which has an awarded seabed lease for almost 400MW of installed capacity.
