The chief executive of Atlantis Resources Ltd (LON:ARL), Tim Cornelius, has hailed his team after the company achieved first power generation at its MeyGen tidal power project on Tuesday.
He tells Proactive that this milestone is a massive moment not only for Atlantis, but also for the industry as a whole.
“Seminal moment for the company, seminal moment for the entire tidal power industry, not just in Scotland but throughout Europe and, I would venture, globally,” Cornelius says.
It took more than a decade of hard work to get to this stage, but there is no time to stand back and admire the progress made so far, he adds.
“This first phase should be up and operational around Christmas time but at which point we’re only just beginning the story.
“We’re going to be installing a total of 261 turbines on the site, so this is another good five years of work left.
“So no rest for the wicked.”
