Minesto has awarded Jones Bros Ruthin (Civil Engineering) Co Ltd the contract to construct the foundation for Minesto’s first commercial-scale tidal energy power plant. Due to the delivery time for the new foundation, the first installation in Holyhead Deep will be moved forward.
“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”, said Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.

Minesto has completed the procurement of a new foundation construction supplier, following the announcement by the previous contractor in July that it could no longer fulfil its commitments to the project. The new contract has been awarded to the Welsh outfit Jones Bros Ruthin (Civil Engineering) Co Ltd, a civil engineering contractor with more than 60 years of experience in engineering solutions, not least in renewable energy. The foundation will be manufactured in an environment adapted for scaled up production.

At the same time, the global consulting firm Arup has been assigned the task of completing and verifying the design of the foundation.

The foundation design remains valid, providing great advantages in terms of functionality, logistics and economy. 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.

"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.
