MeyGen, Scotland

Lockheed Martin has entered into a global partnership with Singapore-based Atlantis Resources Limited, a leading turbine supplier and project developer in the tidal power industry, to design and provide engineering services for Atlantis’ turbine systems.

Lockheed Martin is under contract with Atlantis as a key manufacturing partner for the next generation turbine – the AR1500. The AR1500 is expected to be deployed in Pentland Firth for the MeyGen project – the world’s largest tidal stream project under development.
