Ocean Renewable Power Company (ORPC)

"Since 2004, ORPC has been hard at work developing breakthrough technology and projects that use ocean and river currents to produce clean, predictable electricity to power our homes and businesses while protecting our environment. We believe that our ocean and river power systems not only can, but must, be designed to preserve the world’s marine ecosystems. They should provide renewable supplies of clean energy that are both reliable and affordable. They should be compatible with other marine industries, and should create quality, sustainable jobs and other economic opportunities in their surrounding communities.

ORPC is advancing commercial development of three proprietary power systems (TidGen®, RivGen® and OCGen®), which all use our patented, core device, the turbine generator unit or TGU. In 2012, ORPC delivered the first power to the grid from our federally-licensed Cobscook Bay Tidal Energy Project utilizing our TidGen® Power System, designed for use at shallow to medium-depth tidal sites."
