Simec Atlantis Energy has secured an order from Japanese utility
Atlantis will supply an AR-series machine and associated balance-of-plant for the €15m project due to be installed by November 2020.
The device will be deployed initially in a demonstration capacity operating at a reduced generation output of around 500kW for data collection and validation purposes.
Completion of the demonstration is slated for the first quarter of 2021.
Green Marine managing director Jason Schofield stated that: "This is an important development for the global tidal energy sector and we are pleased to be at the forefront of the internationalisation of an industry that is now on a steep growth trajectory.”
Atlantis announced that there is a possibility to upgrade the project to full output following completion.
