Technical progress for Minesto (tidal energy)
In October, Minesto’s quarter-scale sea trials of the Deep Green technology have reached new highs of electricity generation. The results correspond to full power production for a full-scale power plant.
Quarter-scale sea tests of Minesto’s unique technology for producing electricity from low-velocity ocean and tidal currents, Deep Green, has been ongoing at Minesto’s test facility in Northern Ireland since 2013. The test results now surpass previously noted maximum levels of electricity generation.
“Following technical development progress in design and control system, the kite is flying with higher trajectory precision than before – which means improved electricity production performance”, says Dr Heije Westberg, CTO at Minesto. ….
