Minesto publishes Year-End Report 2021

March 17, 2022

CEO Dr Martin Edlund: “Minesto's next generation marine power plants are commercially ready to demonstrate the viability of marine energy as indispensable baseload power in a fully renewable energy system. We are, to say the least, excited to demonstrate the commercial potential of the dragons during the year.”

Significant events October–December 2021

  • Minesto continued to strengthen the company's market organisation ahead of the commercial scale up with Cecilia Sernhage as new Communication Manager.
  • In December, Minesto announced that the company's utility-scale Dragon Class power plants, based on analysed production data and verified simulations, are each projected to produce 3.5 GWh of clean electricity per year at identified sites.
  • Within the framework of the companies' strategic collaboration, Minesto and Schneider Electric participated together in the energy conference Enlit Europe to promote the companies' joint offer to the energy industry.

After the end of the period

  • In March, Minesto announced that the company has decided to focus on grid-connected installation of the Dragon Class systems D4 and D12 within the existing power purchase agreement in the Faroe Islands. Through this, Minesto will be able to benefit from significant synergies, risk mitigation and opportunities to conduct a more cost-effective operation, while at the same time enabling a quicker route to commercial roll out.
