Ocean Power Technologies Deployment of PB150 PowerBuoy in the North Sea, Scotland
Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) has deployed its PowerBuoy® PB150 device at a site approximately 33 nautical miles from Invergordon, Scotland. Initial test results from this first of the company's new generation of utility-scale wave energy devices were better than expected.
Stromness-based Aquatera paved the way for this deployment to happen, by performing the necessary consultation work to gain consents from Marine Scotland and providing general operational support to OPT.
