Orkney Marine Energy Firms Establish Singapore Partnership

Orkney marine energy consultancies, Orcades Marine Management Consultants Ltd (OMMC), and Aquatera have formed Singapore based partnership with local company OceanPixel to provide marine operations planning, management and verification services.

The new company – Orcades Marine Asia Pte Ltd – will primarily focus on providing operational management of marine renewable energy installations, including tidal, wave, floating solar and offshore wind.

The firm will also engage in research and development projects aimed at developing innovative and cost-efficient deployment solutions for the Asian marine renewables sector.

Captain David Thomson, managing director of OMMC, said: “We’ve worked on projects in Asia now for a number of years and have an excellent relationship with OceanPixel and other key specialists in the region. Establishing a formal partnership in Singapore was the next logical step for us and it helps ensure we’re well placed to capitalise on the many opportunities arising from the emerging renewables sector in Asia.”

As well as providing support to global technology and project development clients wishing to work in South East Asia, Orcades Marine Asia will be working with the OceanTera project development companies being established in the Philippines, Singapore and elsewhere. These companies, backed by Aquatera and OceanPixel, are partnering with investors and project co-developers to proactively lead in the establishment of demonstration and commercial projects across the SEA region.
