Marine contractor Leask Marine were engaged by Inyanga Maritime to support Minesto UK’s Deep Green project in Holyhead Deep, off Wales.
The works consisted of mooring handling operations and the recovery of the micro-grid system (MGS) buoy for winter storage and service maintenance at Holyhead port.
The offshore buoy was designed and constructed by Malin Group to provide data and communications with Minesto’s DG500 marine energy power plant.
It also acts as a floating micro-grid system, facilitating grid compatibility testing by handling and analyzing electricity generated by the 500kW device.
The project works were performed by Leask Marines MV C-Odyssey and the 17m x 6m buoy was towed to Holyhead port for refit.
