Minesto Gets Approval for Holyhead Deep Installation

Tidal energy developer Minesto has received a marine license for a 0.5MW installation of its Deep Green technology in Holyhead Deep in Wales.

Consenting authority, Natural Resources Wales, has approved a marine licence application by Minesto for the installation and operation of a 0.5MW Deep Green power plant in Holyhead Deep.

Minesto’s CEO Dr Martin Edlund said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded consent for our first installation in Holyhead Deep. It’s a great achievement by everyone involved in the application process, and yet another deliverable met as we move towards commercialization of our Deep Green power plant.”

Leading up to the approved application an in-depth Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been carried out, Minesto said.

The EIA considered the potential impacts acts on fisheries, marine mammals, sea birds, marine archaeology and cultural heritage as well as shipping and navigation, which were concluded to be ‘not significant’.

The now consented installation in Holyhead Deep is planned for this year and it will include a single Deep Green device, seabed foundation and a buoy moored at surface.
