Cimpina to Build Subhub Tidal Platform

Cimpina based in Northern Ireland in Belfast Docks has been awarded a cantract by QED Naval to build the Subhub tidal platform.

Work started in November and the outer shell was taking shape before Christmas. Completion is expected in the first quarter of 2017.

The Community Subhub with a capacity of 200kW using Schottel tidal turbines will be launched and transported up to EMEC for testing, as part of the FORESEA project.

The performance of the Subhub and turbines will be monitored. Long-term operations and maintenance strategy will be developed to validate the OPEX cost model and hence the LCOE for a Subhub related project.
