Minesto Unveils Utility Scale Deep Green Kite at Holyhead

Minesto has held an unveiling ceremony of the company’s first marine energy kite at utility scale in Holyhead on Thursday.

Minesto was joined by local suppliers and partners, representatives of the Welsh Government and Albert Owen, Member of Parliament for Anglesey for the unveiling of the DG500 kite, Minesto’s first device at utility scale of its patented marine energy technology called Deep Green.

We are celebrating what Minesto have achieved in Anglesey over the last few years. The demonstration of our unique technology in the Holyhead Deep is a first-of-its-kind project that represents a substantial milestone for Minesto and the marine energy industry in Wales,” said Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.

The DG500 system is currently undergoing a commissioning program at Minesto’s site in the Holyhead Deep off the coast of North West Wales. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh European Funding Office.

Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Mark Drakeford said: “The unveiling of Minesto UK’s EU funded Deep Green kite technology marks a significant milestone towards tidal energy generation. It is very good to see the progress of this unique project in Anglesey, an example of just how important EU funds are to growth and jobs in North Wales and to the development of Wales’ marine energy industry.”
