The “MEY-21-2-REP-002-F-Meygen & Raz Blanchard Array Development And Model Optimisation_Rev2” report below summarises the MeyGen array development /optimisation model updates resulting from high-fidelity flow data field work and data analysis undertaken at the MeyGen site in 2022-2023 (as reported in T1.6.6 – “MEY-21-2- REP-001-F-MeyGen- 2022 Field Work Analysis Report”), and also the related learning and
impacts (if any) on Raz Blanchard site development.

This work was undertaken in the TIGER project in order to integrate the field measurements taken at MeyGen with the MeyGen tidal stream array development / optimisation model and then apply the learning to the ongoing Raz Blanchard site development (itself supported under TIGER).

As array development / optimisation models for tidal stream are relatively scarce, this work was of significant interest to Normandie Hydroliennes for the development of its tidal stream project at Raz Blanchard, France, as well as the wider tidal stream sector. Normandie Hydroliennes hopes, and anticipates, that this publication will assist the whole tidal stream industry as it develops larger-scale arrays.
