Minesto seeks kite kit
Tidal developer tenders for launch and recovery system for Deep Green device
Swedish tidal developer Minesto has tendered for the concept, design and fabrication of a launch and recovery system for its 500kW tidal kite to be installed off Anglesey.
Minesto is seeking a vessel to pick up and transport the Deep Green 500 kite from the Holyhead harbour to the Holyhead Deep deployment site.
In its tender notice, Minesto said the vessel needs to recover a subsea tether held by a tether buoy, secure the buoy to the vessel, disconnect the tether and connect to the kite’s top joint connection to the top joint on the tether before launch.
The tender closes on 8 August with a 28 August contract award date.
