Award success for tidal energy pioneers

|23 November 2016|


A leading tidal energy provider has been recognised by its industry peers for developing the Most Promising Turbine Concept – its innovative Deep Green technology.

Minesto picked up the award during this week’s International Tidal Energy Summit in London for the technology, which is designed to produce ‘electricity from low-velocity tidal streams’.

On Tuesday evening, in a global competition of the most prominent players in the industry, leading tidal energy developer Minesto won the award for the Most Promising Turbine Concept at the International Tidal Energy Summit in London.

“We are delighted and proud of being awarded the most promising technology in the industry. Not least due to the fact that it is the international industry community that recognises the viability and potential of our unique technology,” says Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto. “Five years ago, it was about a ground-breaking invention ready to begin ocean testing. Today, Deep Green is a verified technology receiving this prestigious recognition, in the strongest possible competition, by our international industry. That is very pleasing and an acknowledgment of all the hard work done and on how far we have come.”

Founded in 2007, Minesto has offices in Sweden, Wales and Northern Ireland.
