MeyGen: Pentland Firth/Inner Sound Project, Edinburgh

About this event

The MeyGen project is located in the Inner Sound of the Pentland Firth, the body of water that separates the north Scottish mainland from Stroma Island. Approximately five years ago, an initial site selection process was conducted on the whole of the Pentland Firth using a tidal flow model which was created in order to highlight areas of suitable resource for tidal stream energy projects.

David will discuss the work carried out to date and future development of the project.
