Minesto Underwater AWE News

Speaking of jet designers, I took Santos’ advice and contacted Minesto for some details.
The main guy Magnus told me they have yet to feed the grid, and that their projects thusfar have just been demos. Said their first grid feed is slated to be this year when they will connect their first two machines to the grid in the Faroe Islands

The same info you can find on their website: https://minesto.com/news-media/minesto-signs-ppa-electric-utility-sev-utility-scale-tidal-energy-installations

A quick browse on their website gave me this Swedish talk where the slides (in English) say the same thing. They raised a total of 34 million euro in public and private funding in 2019.

Part in the video where we can see the system in action: https://youtu.be/1sJKplU2F7U?t=539

Really? Where is the info that they have yet to feed the grid? (Never generated electricity into the grid)? That was the observation of interest. My possibly-flawed recollection was “deep green” was supposed to generate 500 kW into a grid. I know it was supposed to send 500 kW somewhere.
