Minesto Installs MGS Buoy in Holyhead Deep

Minesto has completed the installation of the micro grid system (MGS) buoy that will be used for the company’s first tidal energy installation in Holyhead Deep, Wales.

Moored to the seabed using three anchor lines, the offshore buoy will provide auxiliary power and communications with Minesto’s DG500 marine energy power plant and will also act as a floating micro grid system

It will be used for facilitating grid compatibility testing by handling and analyzing electricity generated by the DG500 device.

The MGS buoy has been designed and constructed by Malin Group in Glasgow.

Minesto marine operations team was responsible for the tow down the River Clyde and the Irish Sea to Minesto’s Holyhead Deep site off the coast of North West Wales.
