Testimonials from clients:


"The Atlantis Group have often used Green Marine for offshore construction and survey operations across various projects in our tidal energy portfolio. Not only are they professional and safe in the way they plan, prepare and execute their operations offshore, they are also creative, lateral thinking and always display a ‘can do’ attitude. Jason and the team at Green Marine are model contractors - safe, hard working, and always trying to innovate to make turbine and foundation installations more efficient and more cost effective. They are fast becoming an essential part of the marine energy supply chain in Scotland.”  Tim Cornelius, CEO of Atlantis and Chairman, MEYGEN

"They were an outstanding team, and proved themselves to be strong heads, dedicated to the job, and above all cautious. The barge exceeded our own expectations and we achieved the reinstallation in an extremely quick time. There is no doubt that I would recommend Green Marine for a future installation or retrieval of the HS1000 and future tidal turbines and similar work.”  Rupert Raymond, Naval Achitect & Lead Installation Engineer, ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest

"EMEC have been working with Green Marine for around a year to undertake various operation and maintenance tasks on our Marine Energy test sites. Green Marine ’s logistical capabilities are very impressive and have found the company set up and equipment to be ideal for our offshore tasks, which can at times be in demanding conditions. We have also found the experienced management and staff to have a real will to help the customer, which is strongly reflected in the excellent service we have received. From planning to completion, it is evident Green Marine staff feel connected to our projects, this pride results in our work being undertaken in a safe and successful manner.”   Mark Wemyss, European Marine Centre (EMEC) Ltd

“Wello Oy completed a successful wave energy converter deployment at the EMEC’s wave test site in Orkney during June - July 2013. Mooring installation and converter hook up was given as a turnkey contract to Orkney based off shore company Green Marine Ltd. Their fleet, technical expertise and highly committed staff ensured the successful operation at given budget and time. I am very happy to say that especially Green Marine’s commitment to common target kept up good spirit in constantly changing conditions due to weather, technical challenges and so forth. Well done from the whole team.”  
Timo Lotti • Chief Operating Officer, Wello Oy

“Green Marine is one of our key supply chain partners and have invested significantly in understanding the challenges we face in installing, retrieving and maintaining tidal turbines. This has led to them bringing innovation to the marketplace which has enabled AHH to significantly reduce the cost of our marine operations. Coupled with their vast experience in this specialised area, and their can-do attitude we look forward to continuing to work with them in future projects, and strongly recommend all other parties engaged in ocean energy to discuss their marine operation requirement with them as they have lot to offer.”  Martin Sloan, Commercial Manager/ Craig Love, Engineering Manager, ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest
