Project Image
Client: Various developers
Date: 2009
Location: Scotland (UK)
Various developers and utility companies selected Aquatera to undertake site selection studies for the Crown Estate's 2009 wave and tidal energy development lease option process for seabed leases around Orkney and the Pentland Firth.

The work was based around weighting various key data sets as to their likely impingement on device deployment and operation.  Data sets included raw resource levels, conservation areas, seabed conditions and other sea users.

Once sites had been identified various charts were produced for the site application process outlining device locations, cable routeings and likely cable landfall points.
