It will cover general support services for a variety of operational needs including, but not limited to trials and development program for LARS and replica trails kite; and support services related to establishing the assembly hall and services within.

Under the agreement, Minesto is also requesting support for providing additional engineering with respect to maintenance, repair, and recovery for any aspect of Minesto’s operation which may not be covered by consequent Installation or O&M contracts.
