A C Marine & Composites has secured a contract from Minesto to supply composite struts, in partnership with Off Limit Engineering for its Deep Green project which will be deployed at Holyhead Deep, off the coast of Wales.
Christian Norinder, development engineer at Minesto said: “A C Marine & Composites have a mature and structured process and production philosophy. Combined with highly relevant experience of design and manufacturing of tidal energy turbines, they are a nice fit as partner to Minesto in building and deploying our first Deep Green power plant in commercial scale.”
Alex Newton, Director at A C Marine & Composites said: “We are extremely proud to have been awarded this contract by Minesto. The flexibility and versatility of composite manufacturing makes this technology a prime candidate for use in tidal energy devices.”
The technology will be used on Deep Green, the project that can extract energy from low-velocity tidal and ocean currents in a cost-effective way.
Alex Hewitt, director at Off Limit Engineering said: “Off Limit Engineering is extremely pleased to be working with ACM&C and Minesto on the Deep Green project, which is a major step forward in unlocking the potential of tidal power and de-coupling it from high energy environments.”
