Orkney Islands Council
Working together for a better Orkney


The wave and tidal regime in Orkney waters was the most significant influence in the decision to locate the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney.

EMEC is part of the skills and knowledge base which has built up in Orkney in recent years, providing a good basis for future expansion, and for exporting skills from the County.
