Leading tidal powerhouse, Orbital, will bring its breakthrough floating turbine technology into operation on opposite ends of the UK after approval for use at a new location on the Isle of Wight.

Orbital, currently a Testing Scotland-built O2 turbine at Orkney’s European Marine Energy Center (EMEC) has confirmed it will qualify multiple applications for submission to Round 4 (AR4) of the UK Government’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme.

This gives him a credible path to launch cross-device projects in locations across the UK as early as 2025.

One of these will be the Perpetuus Tidal Energy Center (PTEC) off the south coast of the Isle of Wight, after the onshore – Approvals for the project have been approved by the Isle of Wight Council’s Planning Committee.

Orbital was the first company to sign up for use on site t registered. With the offshore permits, onshore permits and grid connection agreement now completed, the project is now prepared to secure part of the dedicated funding provided under the UK’s world’s leading tidal technology support program.

In addition Orbital is also seeking engagements on the Morlais project under development in Anglesey, where it is a longtime berth owner. The project received development approval from the Welsh government on December 10th.

These applications are underpinned by the positive performance of Orbital’s flagship O2 turbine, which started operations in Orkney waters in July.

The company is also building on the additional momentum generated by the strategic new investment by TechnipFMC, a leading global offshore EPCI contractor for the traditional and emerging energy industries.

Oliver Wragg, Commercial Director at Orbital, said: « With the government’s clear support for tidal electricity, we now see significant commercial project opportunities with the ability to secure a CfD in AR4 and go into construction. We see this very strongly as the UK government kicking off a new global renewable energy industry and paving the way for Orbital to deliver significant amounts of clean and predictable energy to turn the tide on climate change.

“Successful project applications will generate significant foreign investment in the UK supply chain and create hundreds of jobs across the country. In addition to the production of orbital turbines, long-term local jobs are created to support the ongoing implementation of these flagship projects for renewable energies.
