Oyster 800 installation

Installation of Oyster 800 wave energy converter

We have now installed and attached our next-generation Oyster 800 wave energy device to its foundations on the seabed at Billia Croo near Stromness in Orkney.

We also completed directional drilling earlier this year and have now started work to connect the high pressure water flow lines to the shore and the onshore hydroelectric plant.

Thank you to local photographer Mike Roper who captured these fantastic shots of Oyster 800 for us.
