Orion Energy Centre

The Orion Energy Centre is the only hydrodynamic wave test facility based in the north of Scotland – a location ideally located to service Scotland’s growing number of energy companies, the facility boasts an impressive fully automated wave tank that can be used to test wave energy devices.


The tank uses the latest Edinburgh Designs wave generating software to accurately re-create seas from anywhere on the planet, while data is recorded using state-of-the-art data acquisition systems. Our facility has proven to be ideal for survivabilty and performance optimisation testing of wave energy devices.

With extensive working knowledge of the complexities of marine energy, our team know that understanding the harsh marine environment is key to the development of your wave and tidal project.
