Marine Power Systems looking for wind turbine supplier

Marine Power Systems (MPS) has launched a tender searching for a contractor to support the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) of the wind turbine system for its combined wave energy and floating wind solution.

Applicants are invited to submit their expressions of interest by 11 March, while the deadline for the tender is 25 March by 17:00h local time.

The Welsh marine energy company plans to demonstrate the floating platform that will support both wind and wave energy generating devices at the grid-connected BiMEP test site in northern Spain.

The megawatt-scale demonstrator project will begin operation in early 2023.

The project has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and significant private investment has been received to support the project.
