Marwick Head Wave Energy Project

ScottishPower Renewables is at an early stage in investigating the potential for a 50 megawatt wave project off the west coast of Orkney, close to Markwick Head.

The site of the Marwick Head Wave Energy Project was secured as part of The Crown Estate’s Pentland Firth leasing round and will be developed in phases.

We anticipate that phase one of this project will have a capacity of up to nine megawatts and we aim to develop a further 41 megawatts of cleaner greener energy after this initial stage is complete.
