Combating climate change with proven and reliable underwater power systems that generate clean energy from free-flowing tides and rivers, ORPC improves people’s lives and their environment through sustainable energy solutions. A global leader in marine renewable energy (MRE) technology and project solutions, we are initially focused on solving the problem of high cost, environmentally-risky diesel power generation in remote islanded communities by harnessing the power of ocean and river currents to create clean predictable locally produced renewable energy. Worldwide we are the only company to have built, operated and delivered power to a utility grid from an MRE tidal project, and to a local microgrid from an MRE river project. ORPC is committed to working with local partners and creating local economic opportunities. In 2019, ORPC launched its commercial RivGen® Power System in Igiugig, Alaska, now supplying energy to the remote community and the longest operating current energy converter device in the Americas. In 2021 ORPC will install a second RivGen device in Igiugig, along with smart grid technology and energy storage, decreasing the community’s diesel fuel use by 60-90%. ORPC has developed a globally respected knowledge database of fisheries and marine life interaction with our power systems, and in over a decade, no known adverse impacts have been observed in either river or ocean environments. Our projects are carried out in full collaboration with local communities, universities, environmental agencies, fishing industry groups and other stakeholders. ORPC is pursuing strategic and financial partnerships that will allow us to expand our operations in North America, South America and Europe, and supply our commercial power systems and expertise worldwide where ocean and river energy resources exist.
