|Wonder if of any interest to ARL?http://www.begbies-traynorgroup.com/news/administration/buyer-sought-as-tidal-energy-company-goes-into-administration|
|lux, step and others, Thanks for the info.
Done some more research, in order to better understand the installation. It is a three stage process, foundation, then turbine fitting and electrical connection, then nacelle and rotors. There are two different teams installing, Geosea and James Fisher.
Olympic Orion looks like it is bound for Nigg this evening. [maybe for more hardware?] Fascinating to follow this story in between times!|
|They are continuing to state first power before the end of the year. They must be pretty confident. (cue RNS saying "Easter"!!!)|
|Yes, not much point commissioning a 4th turbine underwater unless the 1st turbine was about to be connected.
In theory, the underwater connection tunnels are in place, the cables are there, with an active high voltage line taking the feed directly to the grid. I'd like to be cautiously optimistic that at least 1-2 will be connected by the end of November. You see wind turbines connected in much the same way over a period of less than a week.|
|They have been so lucky with the weather.
I guess the last foundation goes in today.
What I am unsure about is the timing of the fitting of the turbine to the foundation, then the subsequent electrical connection.
Does the fitting of the turbine follow directly after the ballast blocks have been placed? Anyone know?
edit added, Marine Traffic saying Olympic Orion has been adjacent to Neptune but is now returning to port. I guess it has delivered the ballast blocks.|
|Yes all seems to be going swimmingly so far......|
|It looks to me like the 'heavy' work might be completed this weekend/early next week.
I'm not sure how much extra time the electrical connections and other commissioning will take, but I think there could be a very positive rns could be on the way quite soon.|
|Good recent pictures on Atlantis website of loading process over the last few days.
Neptune on the move up north again this morning.
Weather forecast superb.|
|Neptune returned to Nigg last night. Assuming all the bases are installed, I guess getting ready for loading and fitting the turbines. Weather not so good right now, but settles again early next week.
edit, added 20:16 15/10/2016 photos suggest that they may be quite a bit further on in the installation process than I had imagined. :-)|
|It's worth watching the installation of the bases.

Atlantis Resources Limited
("Atlantis" or the "Company")
Atlantis, a global leader in the tidal power sector, is pleased to announce that the MeyGen team successfully installed the first Turbine Support Structure ("TSS") at the MeyGen project site in the Pentland Firth at approximately 0300 on 7 October 2016. The project remains on track to install the remaining structures and turbines and deliver first power from the world's largest tidal power project this year.|
The first turbine foundation for MeyGen Phase 1A project has been deployed in the Pentland Firth, off Caithness.
The foundation, weighing more than 1,000 tonnes, has been installed by GeoSea’s jack-up vessel MV Neptune early this morning, October 7, Atlantis informed on social media.
GeoSea worked alongside James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), a specialist in dynamic positioning vessel operations in high tidal flow conditions.
In the meantime, the DP2 vessel Aker Wayfarer has arrived to Nigg Energy Facility to start the mobilisation of the turbines for the project.
The total of four 1.5MW turbines, three of which were built by Andritz Hydro Hammerfest, and one is the AR1500 Atlantis turbine, will be installed in the Phase 1A of the project.
As reported earlier, JFMS will install and connect three tidal turbines, and one will be installed by GeoSea.|
|Twitter feed reporting with pictures, that the bases were installed last night.|
|Neptune on the move this morning.
Weather forecast looking good this week|
|I'm not sure about the colour.|
|lol very clever!|
"Y" should it ?
|I really hate telling people how to do their job, but wont the Base fall over without that Leg they have missed?|
|Just seen the price, have I missed some news?
|The pessimist within me was telling me early this year that installation would begin around the Autumn equinox, which together with the "ides of March" always seems to me to be a stormy period. Sure enough, it has happened that way, so I'll be relieved when we get news that it is complete, and if they manage it without delays or serious snags it bodes well for the future and indicates that they have assembled a good team.
|ensja540, thanks, that's a certain way to keep track of progress.|
|If you follow the Neptune, it has already made at least 1 trip to the installation site which I assume means that installation is already well under way... hxxp://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:298199/mmsi:253532000/vessel:NEPTUNE|
|Looking at the twitter feed it appears that the installation proper may start this week.
The forecast looks okay although there is some rough weather for a day in the middle of the week|
|Hi stepone, thanks for the reply. Has the foundation been prepared already?
If so it guess it could be a fairly straight forward procedure, assuming the weather is favourable.
edit added 24/09/2016
I have answered my own question. The foundation is preprepared. Each turbine is anchored by six 200 ton ballast blocks. Looks like the process could be very straight forward.|
|From the last RNS - "Atlantis remains on track to deliver first power to the grid from MeyGen Phase 1A later this year"|
