Orcades Marine provided an innovative approach to the marine and installation methodology and, with no compromise to safety, brought the project in under budget and ahead of schedule.

Timo Lotti. Chief Operating Officer. Wello Oy

“Wello Oy contracted Orcades Marine Management Consultants Ltd as principal contractor for the installation of the Penguin wave energy converter. Despite significant challenges during the mobilisation phase, the Penguin was installed safely and electrically connected according to the detailed procedures that Orcades Marine produced. They have provided a  personal service, knowledgeable marine advice and have been quick to respond when required. The attention that Orcades give to the safety of operations is commendable and we recommend Orcades Marine for their advice and guidance in marine operations.”
