It's a huge achievement for the team. The installation operation went very smoothly and it absolutely goes to show that tidal energy devices can be installed in a low cost and efficient manner.

Oyster 800 Wave Energy Convertor Project
We have over the years developed a very positive and mutually beneficial working relationship with Leask Marine Ltd and are pleased to provide a reference on our experience of working with them.
We first contracted Leask Marine Ltd. through a competitive tendering process for the supply of vessels, plant and diving services (both directly and indirectly) for installation works, back in 2009. We continued to contract Leask Marine Ltd, for the provision of the same services for offshore maintenance activities until 2011, following which, we contracted them to carry out the decommissioning works of Oyster 1 from the seabed back to shore.
We found Leask Marine Ltd to be highly flexible and experienced throughout the installation, maintenance and decommissioning of Oyster 1 and valued their contribution to making the Oyster 1 test programme a success.
As a result, we were pleased to appoint them again, following a competitive tendering exercise, for the installation and maintenance activities for our next generation wave energy converter Oyster 800, and we continue to procure their services to support our operations and maintenance work.
We are appreciative of the support and excellent working relationship we have built with Leask Marine and can confirm that they have provided the following services to us.
Based on our experience to date; I would have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by Leask Marine Ltd.Martin McAdamChief Executive OfficerAquamarine Power Limited
…………………… Leask Marine have been a critical supplier to EMEC for 9 years and allowed this pioneering infrastructure to be installed and maintained…………
Innovative systems from all over the world have been brought for test to EMEC and Leask Marine have ended up working on practically all of them as either a contractor to EMEC or to our clients.
Leask Marine have always shown exemplary levels of professionalism. Their procedures are tight and their paperwork is rarely able to be improved. Their staff are intelligent and engaged; they participate fully and effectively in risk mitigation activities. H&S is clearly core to the culture of the company. It does not feel like an add-on or something nodded to in order to keep the client quiet.
……………their vessels and processes were audited and found to be in excellent condition.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Leask Marine as a marine contractor, vessel
supplier, diving contractor………..Neil KermodeManaging DirectorThe European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) Limited
