Northern Ireland’s Environment minister praises SeaGen

In a Northern Irish Assembly debate on January 21st, Environment Minister Alex Attwood praised SeaGen’s successful deployment and operation in Strangford Lough. 

“These are the most protected waters in Europe, yet you have there the world birthplace of modern tidal power. That is what SeaGen is: the only plant of its scale in the world that feeds into a national grid anywhere in the world. What has it been able to do? It has been able to reconcile economic and  energy needs with environmental requirements. If we can do it there, we can do it in a lot of other places as we make the argument going forward for the built and natural heritage.” said Minister Attwood.
