SgurrEnergy in MeyGen Win

SgurrEnergy, part of Wood Group’s clean energy business, has been awarded the asset management contract for Phase 1a of MeyGen’s tidal energy project for four 1.5MW tidal turbines in the Ness of Quoys located in Caithness, Scotland.

After providing ongoing engineering expertise on the same site, the renewable energy consultancy was selected by Atlantis Resources, the developer and major shareholder of the MeyGen project, to provide ongoing support for the project.

The latest contract will see SgurrEnergy acting as the site operations contractor initially providing National Grid Control Point services, with the option for expanding services to include remote operational monitoring, control and reporting, for the tidal turbines of the MeyGen site in the future.

The company will provide the services from its newly upgraded SgurrControlCentre in Glasgow.

Phase 1 of the MeyGen project has been consented to a maximum aggregated rated capacity of 86MW, and is proposed to be built out in three sub-phases: Phase 1a, Phase 1b and Phase 1c.

Located in the Inner Sound of the Pentland Firth, just off the Scottish Caithness coastline, Phase 1a of the project generated first power to the grid in November 2016.
