About Oceans of Energy

Oceans of Energy is a young, fast-growing company; we installed the world’s first offshore solar farm in 2019 and have since been operating it in severe offshore conditions. It is our aim to enable the world to generate clean energy from the abundance of space at sea instead of those scarce locations on land.

Our modular offshore solar farm has been operational at sea for more than two and half years and as we are extending it, we are monitoring it extensively. Meanwhile, we are conducting ecological research to assess the impact, both negative and positive, on nature and marine life.


As we are growing at breakneck pace, we are developing technologies and methods without any examples in the world. Please do not expect to find a’ bed of roses’. A pioneering mentality is a must. Do you like to challenge yourself?
