Anchoring Solutions for
Marine Renewables

Ocean energy technologies have the potential to provide steady and dependable power outputs, and as such, can become a major contributor in the challenge to reach the worldwide climate and energy goals. With our solutions, we support the development of ocean energies in challenging areas characterised by rock seabeds.

Tidal Energy The potential in
tidal energy is rising.

Our unique solutions enable successful and predictable energy output from power generated by the accelerated flows of water through restricted channels as a result of the natural rise and fall of the ocean.

These systems minimise environmental impacts, drive down costs and, thanks to the rapid installation target time, create potential where opportunities for installation are short.

Coming in Waves.

Technology such as Wave Energy Converters (WECs) present another opportunity to generate energy from the ocean, offering the potential for long term economic development in coastal regions.

For these projects to be successful, a high level of expertise and cost-effective solutions in rapid deployment of anchors are essential requirements. Often located in harsh environments to capture the power of waves, the need for innovation will help release the fully potential of WECs.

Redefining Anchoring for Marine Renewables

  • 40 Minutes Installation Time

    In the world of tidal and wave energy projects, anchor installation timing is critical. While the potential for developing marine renewable ventures is considerable, project feasibility often hinges on overcoming the challenge of installing an anchor during short weather windows when sea states are as benign as possible. Our pioneering solution was created to address this requirement, with an installation time (deck to deck) target of just 40 minutes in various seabed conditions, from compacted sand to tough basalt, utilising our patented technology.

  • Minimising Environmental Impacts

    Our patented technology achieves industry-leading standards in minimising environmental impact for anchor installation and maintenance. Subsequently, projects are delivered with minimal seabed disturbance, and installation is achieved quietly and tactfully. This innovative and environmentally conscientious approach to projects should have a positive influence in the site consenting and decommissioning process when considered against other solutions – a major benefit to utilising solutions from SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies.

  • Improving Commercial Viability

    Generally, our systems, processes, and patented technologies result in lower logistical costs than traditional gravity and other anchor foundations. The ability to rapidly install anchors in challenging geotechnical conditions and sites, along with our environmentally conscious approach, makes tidal and wave energy projects more cost-effective than ever before.
