Minesto Finds New GBS Foundation Supplier

Minesto has awarded Jones Bros Ruthin (Civil Engineering) the contract to construct the foundation for Minesto’s first commercial-scale tidal energy power plant.

Minesto has completed the procurement of a new gravity-based structure (GBS) foundation construction supplier, following the announcement by the previous contractor in July that it could no longer fulfil its commitments to the project.

However, given the delivery time for the new foundation, Minesto has to move the installation of its unique tidal energy technology in Holyhead Deep to 2018.

In addition, the global consulting firm Arup has been assigned the task of completing and verifying the design of the foundation.

“We are well positioned to meet time frames and deliverables towards our public funding partners, to demonstrate the unique advantages of the Deep Green technology and develop this required source of renewable energy. This situation allows us to prepare and perform the upcoming installation with even greater efficiency and precision,” said Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.
