Energy Infrastructure

RPS plays a leading role in the development of wave and tidal renewable ocean energy systems nationally and internationally.

RPS has over 30 years experience in the wave and tidal energy sector and have designed several of the world's pioneering devices. We have in-depth experience in supporting marine renewable developers through the complete cycle of development from preliminary R&D, through model testing at various scales, detailed design and ultimately prototype deployment. Our skill base includes wave and tidal site resource modelling and evaluation, foundation and device mechanical and structural design, development of installation methodologies and naval architecture associated with the deployment phase. We also have extensive experience in environmental evaluation, EIA's and management of the planning process for marine renewable devices.
