Wave and tidal energy are renewable energy sources receiving attention in research and development due to the abundance of the resource, and the ability to decarbonise. Wave energy is a derivative of wind energy, where the wind interaction with the water surface over large distances causes the propagation and growth of waves that transfer energy across the water surface. Tides are driven by the gravitational pull from the moon, sun, and other celestial bodies, resulting in the natural rise and fall of ocean tides, and currents that contain a natural form of kinetic energy. Our marine heritage and broad range of subsea expertise puts us at the forefront of the wave and tidal industry covering all stages of the project lifecycle, from site selection and design to operations and maintenance.
We are one of the few experts in the world to possess extensive working knowledge of the intricacies of marine energy and we continue to unlock cutting-edge solutions.
