Renewables

Supporting developments in offshore wind, wave, tidal stream, tidal lagoon and tidal barrage

Marine renewable energy will increasingly play an important role in helping the world meet its energy demand, reduce greenhouse gases and improve security of supply from sustainable sources.

ABPmer assists developers and contractors worldwide in achieving their ambitions; sharing detailed knowledge of the marine environment to help them deliver offshore wind, wave, tidal stream, tidal lagoon and tidal barrage development.

We are a recognised Development Service Provider offering a wide range of services that support clients throughout the project lifecycle; from site selection and feasibility, through environmental impact assessment and consenting to engineering design, construction and operation and maintenance.

Such is our reputation, having provided input to most of the UK’s offshore wind, wave and tidal developments as well as elsewhere in the world, we are regularly asked to advise governments, their agencies and regulators in developing and shaping policy.

Our strategic research initiatives for renewable sector continue to be highly regarded and widely recognised outputs.

To date these include: the Atlas of UK Marine Renewable Energy, metocean guidelines for marine renewable projects (CIRIA), SEASTATES weather downtime tool, as well as the BSI Guide: EIA for Offshore Renewable Energy Projects.
