Who We Are

At Mocean Energy we have built an expert team combining scientific principles and real-world experience to develop new renewable technologies which can harness the power of waves – and accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon world. While wave energy companies of the past have focused on large, utility-scale devices, Mocean develops products targeted at niche markets where wave energy has a significant value proposition.

Our first product, Blue Star, is a small Wave Energy Converter (WEC) used to power subsea equipment, supporting the decarbonisation in the offshore energy industry. Future products will address power for islands and utility-scale power combined with offshore wind.

Our technology is proven through offshore trials last year and further trials with customers and partners in 2022-23. We are closing a Seed investment round to deliver contracts for first offshore commercial projects.

The next stages for Mocean are scaling, building robust financial models, and raising growth investments to deliver larger scale products and commercial projects. We value diversity on our team and in our thinking, and are an equal opportunities and family friendly employer.

Other Relevant Information

You may also be required to undertake travel to sites across the UK, in order to support the company and our project management functions at on-site projects.

Timeframes: Accepting applications until 13 February 2023, followed by interviews.

Location: Aberdeen or Edinburgh will be the regular place of work; some home working can be negotiated. Site visits onshore and offshore will be required from time to time

Mode of work: Full-time, permanent
