MGS buoy on the move
Minesto has completed preparations for installation of the micro grid system (MGS) buoy that will be used with the first Deep Green device in Holyhead Deep, Wales. The buoy was lifted from the King George V dock to the River Clyde in Glasgow and will now be towed to Holyhead for upcoming installation at Minesto’s site off the North West Welsh’ coast.
Minesto pitch at reputable EU event
Yesterday, Minesto attended the Blue Invest matchmaking event in Brussels organised by the European Commission. Minesto was one of 20 companies from four different blue economy sectors, selected from a list of 120 applicants, that got the opportunity to pitch their investment case in front of a jury of professional investors. In addition, Minesto’s CEO Martin Edlund was given the chance to meet and network with other potential business partner and high-level stakeholders.
The event was attended by influential stakeholders such as Karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and European Investment Bank Vice President Jonathan Taylor.
In his opening speech, Commissioner Vella said: “Our experience shows that investors trust big brands and tried-and-tested technologies. Meanwhile, start-ups and scale-ups, especially in emerging areas like ocean energy or blue biotech, are struggling to raise much smaller sums. It’s an issue of visibility. And it’s an issue of credibility as well. And in both cases the European Commission is ready to help.”
