The MeyGen project, which is 100% owned by Atlantis, is located in the Pentland Firth in Scotland and is the largest planned free stream tidal energy project in the world. A 252MW connection has been secured with Scottish Hydroelectric Power Distribution and the National Grid, and all consents have been secured for construction of the 86MW first phase.

First power is targeted for 2016 and it is estimated that 42,000 Scottish homes will be powered each year and 122,455 tonnes of CO2 will be offset per annum when the project has been constructed.
