October 31 (Renewables Now) - SIMEC Atlantis Energy Ltd (LON:SAE) has won a contract from Kyuden Mirai Energy (KME) to supply and install tidal power generation equipment for a JPY-1.8-billion (USD 16.6m/EUR 14.9m) demonstration project in Japan.
Specifically, the Atlantis Turbine and Engineering Services Division (ATES) will deliver an AR-Series turbine, with the associated balance of plant, and deploy it at a site in Nagasaki Prefecture. The device will operate at a reduced generation output of about 500 kW and provide data collection and validation capabilities to the client and Japanese regulatory bodies.
In addition to supplying the turbine, Atlantis will also deliver the foundation and associated cables. Orkney-based offshore marine energy construction specialist Green Marine will provide installation support.
Atlantis anticipates to finalise the installation by late in the third quarter of 2020.
