Inner Sound Successful ADCP Retrieval

Published 23rd of April 2014

Mojo Maritime and the University of Exeter successfully retrieved an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) from the MeyGen site. The water velocity from the seabed to the sea surface has been measured in all three directions for the duration of one month; the data is currently being post-processed by the University of Exeter and will be made available to MeyGen shortly. Measured data is crucial to the prediction of tidal flows and to the design of the turbines and can be used for the validation of numerical models for long-term array performance predictions.  This data and information will add to our continual campaign to understand the flow and dynamic environment of the Inner Sound

Inner Sound Near Shore Survey Results Published

Published 10th of April 2014

In August 2013 Mojo Maritime Ltd completed a near shore bathymetric survey at the Ness of Quoys on behalf of MeyGen Limited. The survey measured the depth of the seabed with respect to Lowest Astronomical Tide (LAT) to a resolution of 20cm; the data collected will aid the cable installation process in order to connect the offshore site to the onshore site and grid connection. The quality of the data is very good with matching overlap from the previous bathymetric survey taken in 2009.

MeyGen – Canisbay Primary School

Published 5th of March 2014

As part of a class science project on Renewable Energy, Guy Newson gave a short talk to the students at Canisbay Primary School on 5th March about the MeyGen Project.  Using some film footage, Guy explained the main features of the project and how much energy it can produce.  The students asked some very good questions and later, following a short test by the teacher, showed how much information they had retained.   We hope to be able to provide an opportunity for the students to visit the site during construction (to perhaps see some of the fabrication) and then to visit the site again once operational.
