Working with us

Why work with OpenHydro?

Life at OpenHydro combines opportunities to work on pioneering engineering challenges across the globe, with a dynamic culture of collaboration and innovation.  We have achieved a number of industry firsts, including being the first to deploy a tidal turbine at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), the first to generate electricity from tidal streams onto the UK grid, and the first to deploy commercial scale turbines in Canada and France. With support from Naval Energies, OpenHydro has established itself as the market leader in tidal energy - an industry estimated to be worth over €200 billion. Our vision is to be the global leader in tidal solutions, profitably delivering economic marine renewable energy. Do you have what it takes to be a part of our journey?
