Holyhead hosts Minesto build
Tidal developer to lease new assembly hall from Stena Line
Swedish developer Minesto has agreed a deal with Stena Line to use a new assembly hall in the Welsh port of Holyhead for the commercial roll out of the Deep Green tidal kite.
The shipping outfit and port owner Stena will build the new facility that will be completed by June.
Minesto is planning a first commercial array at Holyhead Deep and is currently also seeking to up top power at the site from 10MW to 80MW.
“We are very pleased to have finalised this agreement with Stena Line,” chief executive Martin Edlund said.
“With its direct quay access for offshore transports to and from site we have secured a unique location that suits us perfect.”
He added: “We are two companies from Gothenburg, exploiting these ocean energy business opportunities together in Wales, which adds to the excitement.”
