Wave Energy Scotland (part of Highlands and Islands Enterprise) has issued a Prior Information Notice about two potential future contract opportunities. The notice is particularly relevant for companies with capability in offshore – connections using electrical infrastructure and mooring line.
The notice appears on the Public Contracts Scotland website, and is intended to allow parties to research and start to prepare for any future tender. There are two opportunities:
- a call for proposals to develop technology or methods to fulfil the quick connection operation, particularly focused on the connection between a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) and its associated electrical infrastructure and mooring lines
- the appointment of suitably qualified individuals to act as external experts during the selection process for the project proposals.
