SolarMarine Energy Projects

SolarMarine Energy completes a wide range of projects including both research and commercial projects. Many of these are commercially sensitive so not included on our website, others are less sensitive so details of some of these projects are included below. Please contact us for more, we’d be glad to share further information with you if required; we can also arrange non-disclosure agreements to allow the appropriate exchange of more sensitive information.
