Minesto Tidal Kite Installation

In March 2021 Aequorea Ltd. mobilised to the Faroe Islands to assist Minesto and their marine contractors Inyanga Marine Projects with the installation of their Deep Green Tidal Kite technology. Installing USBL and GNSS systems to the construction vessel enabled rapid installation and recovery operations to be performed in the required tidal window every time. Aequorea also provided some intensive training to Minesto personnel, allowing them to bring survey operations in house, with Aequorea offering technical support from our UK offices.

Having been involved with tidal renewable energy projects since 2007, it was a pleasure to work with both Minesto and Inyanga Marine Projects and to assist in progressing this fascinating project that will have long reaching effects for the entire energy industry.
