The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has launched a tender for the provision of environmental monitoring services at the proposed Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site (AMETS).

The monitoring services, to be delivered either by individual or organization, will ensure continuity of ecology data, in keeping with the data provided in the Environmental Impact Assessment for AMETS, SEAI said.

AMETS site is being developed by SEAI to facilitate testing of full scale wave energy converters in an open ocean environment. The site is located off Annagh Head, west of Belmullet, Ireland.

The deadline for applying to tender is set for April 5, 2017.

SEAI owns a foreshore lease for two berths at AMETS for a period of 35 years which was granted in 2015.

It is anticipated that a maximum power of 10MW will be generated at the site, which is the equivalent of providing power to 10,000 homes, according to SEAI.

SEAI is Ireland’s national energy agency that aims to transform Ireland into a society based on sustainable energy structures, technologies and practices.
