MGS buoy on the move
Preparations for installation of the micro grid system (MGS) buoy that will be used to handle and analyse electricity generated by Minesto’s first Deep Green marine energy converter in Utility Scale has been completed.
This includes installation, testing and commissioning of the MGS itself, the power plant’s operating system, environmental sensors and communication systems.
Having been constructed, assembled and commissioned in Glasgow, the buoy was lifted from the King George V dock to the River Clyde by two of the quayside cranes and attached to a multicat vessel. The buoy will now be towed to Holyhead for upcoming installation at Minesto’s site in the Holyhead Deep.
