ORPC’s mission is to improve people’s lives, and their environment, through sustainable energy solutions. The company is a leader in the development of marine renewable energy (MRE) systems that can be deployed in river and tidal environments, centred around its modular and efficient cross-flow turbine technology. ORPC has developed substantial experience in the design, installation, and operation of tidal energy systems, deploying 17 devices since 2010. Among these was the first grid-connected tidal energy system in the Americas in Cobscook Bay, near Eastport, Maine.

The company’s river hydrokinetic devices in the remote Alaskan village of Igiugig are in their fourth year of operations, powering the community’s microgrid and reducing its dependency on diesel.

Headquartered in the U.S., with subsidiaries in Canada, Ireland and Chile, ORPC is a recognized leader in marine energy technology innovation and operational excellence.
