Lashy Sound

Orbital Marine Power was awarded an agreement for lease from the Crown Estate in 2012 for the development of a tidal array at Lashy Sound, Orkney.  The project is currently progressing environmental data gathering to inform an application for consent for a first phase of up to 10 MW of installed capacity.

Whilst the company's business model is primarily as a technology developer and equipment manufacturer, the company will have a role in the early phases of market development through ownership and participation in commercial projects.
