Minesto generated first electricity from second foundation, with improved tether design
Minesto has installed the tidal power plant Dragon 4 and generated first electricity at the newly added second foundation in Vestmannasund. The upgraded tether solution indicates further increase in production yield based on lower friction in the water.
Minesto has successfully installed the tidal power plant Dragon 4 at the newly added second foundation in Vestmannasund.
The upgraded tether design is developed in a targeted R&D project that aims to further improve the production performance by reducing resistance in the water. The project is executed in collaboration with the Swedish Energy Agency.
