The floating tidal turbine developer Scotrenewables Tidal Power Limited has announced a comprehensive company-wide rebranding to Orbital Marine Power.
The new name is inspired by the orbital cycle of the moon around the earth, the reliable provider of tidal energy.
Speaking about the rebranding, Andrew Scott, CEO, said: “After a comprehensive exercise, we are really pleased to introduce our new brand identity, and to do so at such an exciting time for the business, as we begin the build of our next generation turbine, the Orbital O2 2MW (previously referred to as the SR2 2000).”
The Orbital Marine name and corporate identity will carry through to subsidiaries, turbine products and services, and aligns with the Company’s business and technology development strategy.
Orbital Marine is an innovative Scottish engineering company focused on the development of a tidal energy turbine technology with the potential to produce a step-change reduction in the cost of energy from tidal currents, it said.
According to the company website, its novel floating technology offers a low cost solution for simplified and safe manufacture, installation, access and maintenance along with the ability to use low cost, small workboats for all offshore operations. The company currently employs 23 staff with offices in Orkney and Edinburgh.
