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, off the coast of North West Wales.

Moored to the seabed using three anchor lines, the offshore buoy designed for extreme sea conditions will provide data and communications with Minesto’s DG500 marine energy power plant, according to Minesto.

It will also act as a floating micro-grid system, facilitating grid compatibility testing by handling and analyzing electricity generated by the 500kW device.

The MGS buoy has been designed and constructed by Malin Group in Glasgow and was towed down the River Clyde and the Irish Sea to Minesto’s Holyhead Deep site.
