COASTAL + NEARSHORE
40% of world’s population
lives within 100km of the coast. Over 700m people live on islands.
Many of these communities
are struggling to reduce reliance on fossil fuels fast enough to address the climate crisis and face increasing exposure to highly volatile oil and shipping costs.
Sustainable Marine is on a mission
to help these communities achieve energy independence and fight climate change by harvesting clean energy from the waters around them and create transformational socio-economic benefits.
we've been developing tidal energy systems for OVER a decade
Our team have been involved in deploying modular, community-scale systems in Canada, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Singapore, Indonesia, and South Korea.
tidal energy platforms
It is dependable, maintainable and accessible year-round, and its modular design allows for it to be easily assembled on-site.
Sustainable Marine’s PLAT-I (PLATform for Inshore energy) is an innovative floating tidal energy system and the first of its kind in the world.
The mooring turret integrated into Sustainable Marine's proprietary design enables alignment with the tide or river flow in any direction.
The tidal platforms only require 2 meters of water for launching and towing them to their deployment location.
The SCHOTTEL SIT250 turbines are mounted on SIT Deployment Modules (SDMs) allowing them to be quickly raised above the surface for inspection and maintenance, while also reducing draft for transit.
The low mass of the SCHOTTEL turbines allows blades and nacelle to be swapped on-site.
SLEEK AND STABLE
PLAT-I’s design has been developed through numerical modelling and scale model testing at the University of Edinburgh’s FloWave test tank.
Its trimaran design provides low resistance and enhanced lateral and longitudinal stability.
The Tidal Pioneer is one the world’s most advanced sub 30-metre workboats, specifically designed for anchor handling, marine construction and survey activities.
Specification are informed by Sustainable Marine's extensive experience delivering marine energy projects in challenging, high-energy environments.
