Notice relating to the proposed grant of rights to Minesto UK Limited to deploy a 0.5MW tidal stream demonstration device at Holyhead Deep, Holy Island, West Anglesey

Under our current leasing opportunities process for ocean energy, subject to agreeing terms, The Crown Estate intends to grant rights to Minesto UK Limited to deploy a 0.5MW tidal stream demonstration device at Holyhead Deep, Holy Island, West Anglesey.

The rights being granted at this stage are for an Agreement for Lease (AFL) only, in order for the developer to carry out an assessment of the site and complete their consenting activities.

The construction and deployment of the proposed tidal stream demonstration device will be subject to the statutory consenting regime, and an application for development consent has been submitted to the relevant authorities. A Lease for development rights will not be awarded until all of the necessary permissions are secured.
