MarineSpace supports deployment of Deltastream tidal turbine off Pembrokeshire

MarineSpace is delighted that the Deltastream tidal turbine was successfully installed in Ramsey Sound, Pembrokeshire yesterday (13th December 2015) by Tidal Energy Limited (TEL).  MarineSpace has acted as the lead environment and consents adviser to TEL for the last 3.5 years.  During this time, MarineSpace has undertaken all consent compliance and management on behalf of TEL, including leading on discussions with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) over key aspects of the project.  This has included development of various key monitoring plans and programmes as well as the ongoing management and reporting of the various monitoring elements.  Prior to the installation, MarineSpace also prepared and delivered an environmental briefing to the staff of the installation contractor, Mojo Maritime, aboard the installation vessel Siem Daya 1.  MarineSpace will continue to support TEL throughout the operational phase on all consent and environmental issues, which involves the preparation and issue of weekly reports to NRW.
