Seagen delivers two millionth unit of electricity

Marine Current Turbines’ Seagen, the world’s first and only commercial-scale tidal stream energy turbine, has passed another electricity-generation milestone.

The 1.2MW Seagen, located in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, has delivered its two millionth unit of electricity into the UK electricity grid.  

It is now operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is on course to be the first tidal system to meet the power-generation criteria for the UK government’s Marine Renewables Deployment Fund.
