About this event

The MeyGen project is the largest tidal current project under development in Europe. When fully constructed, the project will deliver 398 megawatts of predictable renewable energy, powering nearly 200,000 homes through a network of 269 turbines on the seabed at Ness of Quoys in Caithness, north-east Scotland. Onshore and offshore construction of this iconic project commenced in 2015 and first power is expected to be delivered to the grid in 2016.

This event will provide an update on the construction program and explore how techology developed for the oil & gas market has helped the MeyGen project team address many of the technical challenges confronted during the delivery this flagship project.
