Scottish firm Mocean Energy’s wave energy machine has returned to dock after a successful five-month test period at sea.
Wave energy firm Mocean Energy has opened a new Aberdeen office to meet growing interest from oil and gas producers keen to decarbonise North Sea assets.
Scottish firm Mocean Energy’s Blue X wave energy device has taken the plunge in Orkney ahead of sea trials this summer.
Integrating renewables with oil and gas operations will be fundamental to cutting emissions and maintaining the North Sea’s social licence to continue producing hydrocarbons.
Renewable energy could soon be used to run subsea oil and gas equipment as part of efforts to slash operational emissions.
A Scottish engineering firm has called on the UK and Scottish governments to create “crucial” connections to help the country’s marine energy sectors.
Pioneering new wave technology, which could revolutionise the way in which we capture energy from the sea, is being created in Fife.
A new report has forecasted that Scotland’s marine economy will grow seven-fold to be worth £5billion by 2035 if it can successfully develop key industries.
Two new Scottish wave energy firms have been awarded £7.7 million by a Scottish Government agency in the hopes of giving life to their ideas.
Yam Pro Energy from Israel signed an MOU with Shapoorji Pallonji Group, the owners of the TATA Group, to build a wave energy power station in Ghana.
CorPower Ocean, the Swedish wave energy company, has opened up offices in Kirkwall, Orkney as they prepare to test their wave device at the European Marine Energy Centre.
Politicians must develop a long-term strategy to create a commercial wave energy device to secure the future of wave power in the UK, researchers have said.
A technology quango is looking to push the boundaries of what kind of Scottish weather that wave energy devices can survive by funding 13 innovative projects.
Technology development body Wave Energy Scotland (WES) said yesterday it had awarded grants worth a total of £3million to 10 wave-energy projects.
Two of the world’s top sea-energy test centres say they have successfully replicated the wild ocean environment of Orkney in Edinburgh.
Marine energy is a sector which has faced its fair share of ups and downs. That said, there remains much to be positive about in both wave and tidal energy in Scotland. Both industries have taken enormous strides forward in the last 12 months, and we are now closer to commercialisation than ever before.
Key players in the ocean renewable energy sector have met at the Australian Maritime College, a specialist institute of the University of Tasmania, to observe a world-first trial testing the performance and impact of wave energy farms at model scale.
Sea energy company Wavepower is searching for talented engineers and graduates to help fill 30 new jobs develop the company's new floating power device.
An ambitious £10million plan set up set up seven years ago to make Scotland a world leader in wind and tidal power should be scrapped, according to critics. The Saltire Prize, led by Gordon MP and former First Minister Alex Salmond, has come into difficulty after it was revealed none of the competitors would be able to meet the criteria for the 2017 deadline. According to reports in the Herald Scottish Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser said the ambitious prize had become a “white elephant”.
When Atlantis Resources finally completes its world beating tidal energy development in the North of Scotland, don’t expect exciting photo opportunities to mark the occasion - there’ll be nothing to see. Atlantis’ huge MeyGen project in the Pentland firth will be the world’s biggest tidal project: up to 269 turbines providing almost 400MW - enough electricity for 175,000 Scottish homes. But all that power and infrastructure won’t be visible from the nearby Caithness and Orkney shorelines because all the action takes place below the waves.
