Marine Energy

Oceans of Energy

The world’s oceans are teeming with energy. The prospect of harnessing this oftentimes destructive force, in the form of waves, tides, currents and thermal energy, holds amazing promise for multitudes of endeavors, both maritime and terrestrial. As new “Blue Economy” technologies burst forth, now is the time to take the generation of energy to the open ocean, birthing new industries and revolutionizing existing ones.

Cardinal Engineering has been at the forefront of the United States’ push towards creating a new marine energy industry, working with the U.S. Department of Energy, national renewable energy centers and laboratories, industry, and researchers. Our custom-made skillset is perfect for the task: system marinization; power generation and distribution; requirements definition and specification development; and demonstration testing.

As we stand on the brink of opening the ocean frontier to enhance the human condition, while simultaneously protecting the planet and conserving our environment, water power is poised to create new and exciting opportunities.
