Current Orbital Project Locations – UK

Estimates show that up to 11% of the UK’s current electricity demand could be met by harnessing the tidal streams that occur in UK waters, with even greater potential across Europe.

This map shows the initial projects which Orbital plans to start in the UK. The company has plans to develop further multi-MW tidal stream projects in the UK and other countries across the world where there is viable tidal stream resource to help make the transition to a net zero future.

Isle of Wight

The Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) site, located to the south of the Isle of Wight, where tidal flow is the strongest, is where Orbital plans to install turbines.

Orkney

Orkney Project

Orbital already has under operation the world’s most powerful tidal turbine, O2. It will shortly be joined by a further commercial turbine under the FORWARD2030 project, which aims to combine predictable floating tidal energy, wind generation, grid export, battery storage and green hydrogen production.
