ORPC finds Irish Roots

1 June 2015
US marine energy company Ocean Renewable Power Company is setting up shop in Ireland. The device developer from Maine will be based in county Donegal at the Co-Lab Business Centre at Letterkenny Institute of Technology. "Our partnerships with the communities of County Donegal, the Letterkenny Institute, and all those interested in and currently at work in the maritime industry in Donegal, provide a strong base from which to launch ORPC Ireland projects,” said chief executive Chris Sauer. "County Donegal's strong maritime heritage, ocean energy resources, and the Port of Killybegs draw striking similarities to Washington County, home to ORPC's Maine operations,” he added. Donegal County Council chief executive Seamus Neely said: "We are delighted that ORPC Ireland has located itself in Letterkenny, bringing vast knowledge and expertise of marine renewable energies to the county. ORPC Ireland will work in conjunction with the project partners and local communities to bring an injection of economic impetus to Donegal and the North West region.” ORPC said it is known for cultivating strong community and regional relationships through open dialogue and maximizing local and regional economic benefits "including jobs, local spending, increased tax revenues and educational opportunities”.
