The gravity base structure (GBS) which will be used for Minesto’s first tidal energy installation in Holyhead Deep, Wales has been transported to Holyhead. The GBS, manufactured by Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK, was towed up the River Mersey from the dry dock in Birkenhead, Liverpool and along the coast of North Wales to arrive safe and sound in Holyhead on Wednesday.

According to Minesto, the next step is to fit cable chutes before installation is commenced at the site in Holyhead Deep.
