GKinetic Energy Ltd. is an Irish technology company engaged in the development of hydrokinetic turbines that convert the kinetic energy within river and estuary flows into renewable electricity. The Company is participating in a development project part funded by Horizon 2020 to demonstrate use of this technology on the Shannon River in Limerick, Ireland. The Company is inviting quotes for a supplier to provide a hydrology study, preparation of the required Environmental Impact Assessment / Natura Impact Statement, preparation of a permit to install the technology and professional advice and support with the permitting process that will secure a permit to deploy a demonstrator for a limited period at the selected site.
The information gleaned from the studies and statements will assist to select the site and evaluate the hydrokinetic power potential and the likely consequences of such installations on flow distribution, flow velocities and elevations, and impact on the water environment and flood risks, amongst other matters. Timing in respect of completion of the work is of the essence, and the work must commence immediately after the award of the tender and be completed in time to allow the installation and performance validation to progress within the defined time-frame of the Horizon 2020 project.
The company has submitted a Request for Tender on ETENDERS and the deadline for a response is the 30th of December, 2020.
