AC Marine & Composites’ Blades for MeyGen Turbines

A C Marine & Composites received an order to supply tidal turbine blades to Atlantis Resources.

Atlantis Resources selected A C Marine & Composites to manufacture their blades and assist with manufacturing advice during the design phase.

The blades, currently under construction, are destined for Atlantis Resources’ AR1500 1.5 MW tidal turbine, scheduled for deployment at the MeyGen site in Pentland Firth in autumn 2016.

This site itself has environmental consent for 86 MW of tidal energy devices, and a planned capacity of up to 398 MW by the early 2020s, the company said.

The AR1500 is Atlantis Resources’ largest tidal turbine developed in cooperation with Lockheed Martin.
