It goes on to highlight how Aquatera has carried out strategic planning, public and stakeholder communications, environmental assessment and surveying, and technical and operational support for many of the major players in the renewables sector. These include the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC; www.emec.org.uk), the tidal energy device manufacturer, OpenHydro (www.openhydro.com), and the wave energy converter company, Pelamis Wave Power (PWP; www.pelamiswave.com).
