Moray Offshore Renewables Limited (MORL) is a joint venture between two leading European Energy Companies: EDP Renewables (EDPR UK) and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK.
We believe that by marrying the proven technology of onshore wind generation with Scotland's expertise in working in the deep and challenging waters of the North Sea, we can create a secure, plentiful supply of low-carbon electricity; enough to meet the need of almost half of Scotland's households, without burning any coal or gas; and without creating radioactive waste.
