The Company

Minesto is a world-leading marine energy technology developer with the mission to minimise the global carbon footprint of the energy industry by enabling commercial clean electricity generation from tidal streams and ocean currents.

Minesto’s award-winning and patented product, a subsea kite technology called Deep Green, is applicable in areas where no other known technology can operate cost effectively.

The company was founded in 2007 as a spin-off from aircraft manufacturer Saab. Today, listed on the Nasdaq First North stock exchange with more than 50 employees and operations in Sweden, Wales, Northern Ireland and Taiwan, Minesto is a driving force in the creation of an emerging renewable energy industry.

The Role

The role is to become a valued member of the Minesto team and take on the responsibility to project manage the DG500. The position will manage the assembly, installation, commissioning, and operation of Minesto’s Deep Green 500 project. This is a single commercial-scale demonstrator power plant and the proposed expansion into a multi-device array in future phases.

You will be based in Holyhead, but the role will include travel to other Minesto Office bases and Project Sites where a flexible approach to working hours will be required.

You will form part of the Minesto UK set up where you will play an important part in delivering the DG500 project off the coast of Holy Island. 

The role offers you an opportunity to become part of a strong and international team in a pioneering industry.


As the DG500 Project Manager your responsibilities will include all project aspects including planning, budget, reporting, procurement, resource allocation, execution, testing, delivery and documentation.

The role will also include some representation at public stakeholder events and business trips to key suppliers.

You will report to the Chief Operations Officer.

Ideally, having worked in the marine renewable industry would be beneficial.

The ideal candidate will have sufficient knowledge and experience to quickly become familiar in the key aspects of Minesto’s technology, to make key technical and commercial decisions.
