The MeyGen tidal stream project is at the forefront of world marine energy development and will harvest the tidal resource of one of the most energetic sites in Europe.
MeyGen Limited, the development company and project sponsor, has secured an Agreement for Lease from The Crown Estate for the area that lies in the channel (Inner Sound) between the island of Stroma and the north easterly tip of the Scottish mainland, encompassing almost 3.5km2 of fast flowing water. It is our overall goal to deliver a fully operational, 398MW renewable energy plant powered purely by the tide, generating the equivalent electricity to power 40,000 Scottish homes by 2020.
