Inyanga Maritime

Falmouth-based Inyanga Maritime is a specialist in the delivery of offshore energy projects and since their successful installation of the sector’s first large-scale device for MCT in 2008, the Inyanga team has been responsible for 60% of Europe’s total installed tidal energy capacity.

The team now works across almost all G7 countries with a constant focus on the tackling of climate change and sustainability, as well as their daily pioneering of technological change and innovation across the global market.

The company recently opened its first French based subsidiary Inyanga-Tech SAS in Rennes, France, helping to support the growing number of fixed/floating wind, wave and tidal energy projects in the area.

From concept to delivery, Inyanga provides turnkey design and management solutions for global clients with a focus on constant innovation which enables safety, cost effectiveness and offshore manageability.

With over 30 years’ experience in offshore operations in the oil and gas industry, in addition to design, the company provides full offshore management to effectively implement solutions in the offshore environment, providing installation and maintenance of key tidal energy projects, having pioneered best practice for the sector.

Inyanga also supports partner company HydroWing Ltd with the development and implementation of their novel tidal energy devices, also called HydroWIng. The HydroWing technology is a multi-rotor tidal energy system designed based on the first-hand experience and lessons learnt devising, optimising and implementing installation and maintenance strategies for many of the past and current developers over the last 15 years.

Inyanga’s Managing Director Richard Parkinson says, “Alongside its natural beauty, Falmouth and Cornwall overall lies at an essential geographical and technical crossroads for the successful implementation of net zero targets across the EU.  We are therefore able to provide pioneering expertise and leadership to support all G7, D10 and all countries across the globe.”

Richard continues, “With world leading wind, wave and tidal resources within reach of our shore, Cornwall will be instrumental in the implementation of marine renewable energy capacity. We have a history built around the marine environment and together, Cornwall houses some of the UK’s leading innovators for our critical marine energy sector.”
