Minesto to Lease Stena Line’s Assembly Hall for Deep Green

Stena Line has committed to build an assembly hall at the port in Holyhead, Wales, to be leased to Minesto for the rollout of Deep Green technology.

Minesto’s first commercial power plant array will be installed in Holyhead Deep off the coast of North Wales.

The company recently announced plans to expand the project from 10MW to 80MW installed capacity, which will allow Minesto’s power plants to supply as many as 80,000 Welsh households with renewable electricity.

The assembly hall in Holyhead Port is a key part of this process, allowing both assembly and service & maintenance of the power plants to take place in Holyhead Port, Minesto explained.

“We are very pleased to have finalized this agreement with Stena Line. With its direct quay access for offshore transports to and from site we have secured a unique location that suits us perfect,” said Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.

The assembly hall is scheduled for completion in June 2017.
