Holyhead Deep gravity base structure 50 per cent complete
The gravity base structure foundation for Minesto’s first commercial-scale tidal energy converter, due for installation in Holyhead Deep off the coast of North West Wales next year, is now 50 per cent complete.
The concrete base is being constructed by Ruthin-based Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK, with more than 60 years of experience in engineering solutions.
Jones Bros project manager Eryl Evans said: “This is a complex structure that is progressing well and on schedule. We’re excited to be a part of what will be a significant maritime renewable energy project in North Wales.”
Minesto secured a €13m investment from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Welsh European Funding Office in May 2015, for the commercial rollout of its Deep Green technology.
