Home » New tender alert – Minesto

Minesto is looking for a supplier of load cells that will be used for its Deep Green tidal power plant.

Swedish tidal energy developer will use the load cells to measure tether and struts force on its 500kW tidal power plant planned for deployment off Wales.

The load cells will be placed in the top joint, which connects the tether and the wing via the struts.

Designed as load pins, the load cells will measure the forces and the information will be sent to the kite’s control system, Minesto said.

The tender is open until January 30, with the expected award date set for February 20, 2017. Click here for more details.
