Sustainable Marine

Sustainable Marine is a provider of coastal and nearshore renewable energy solutions. Its goal is to power island and coastal communities, and energise the blue economy using sustainable forms of energy generation.

Supported by the Scottish Government with the award of nearly £1.3m from the WATERS3 programme, Sustainable Marine signed up to a berth at the Fall of Warness tidal test site in April 2015.

Having tested a 100 kW PLAT-O prototype off the Isle of Wight, Sustainable Marine brought their PLAT-O 1 MW tidal system, a moored buoyant platform that is positioned mid-water column, to Orkney in April 2016. The testing programme at EMEC was supported by the Interreg NWE FORESEA project.

Following the project at EMEC, Sustainable Marine has developed floating tidal energy platform, PLAT-I, which provides a clean and sustainable energy alternative to diesel or coal for coastal communities. The company offers a complete turnkey solution for tidal energy projects, including design, build, operation, and maintenance services.

EMEC are currently working with Sustainable Marine on the UMACK project which is looking to develop and demonstrate a generic foundation mooring solution to reduce cost and improve operations and maintenance methods.
