Significant events April-June 2022
In April, Minesto launched a build-out plan for tidal energy arrays in the Faroe Islands. The plan includes four new verified sites with the potential to supply 40 percent of the country's growing electricity consumption, enabling the Faroe Islands to reach their policy goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. Together with the local electricity company SEV, Minesto has presented the plan to a wide range of policy and local community stakeholders.
In May, Minesto’s first Dragon Class tidal powerplant “Dragon 4” (100 kW) was successfully launched in Vestmannasund, Faroe Islands. The first week of commissioning included satisfactory electricity production and verification of all core functionalities of the power plant. The kite generated first electricity to grid right “out of the box” and the commissioning plan was executed as planned.
After the end of the period
In July, Minesto announced that the first “Dragon 4” power plant unit had been successfully commissioned in grid-connected operation in Vestmannasund, Faroe Islands, and the company announced verified commercial performance fully in line with simulation results.
