The Blue Economy Cluster is led by Aquatera Ltd.

Aquatera have been in involved in the Blue Economy in Scotland and internationally since its inception in 2000. The company is headquartered in Orkney and has delivered projects in over thirty countries from Kazakhstan to Japan. Having completed the Blue Economy study for Scottish Enterprise with Caelulum in 2019, we have increased our knowledge in the importance of the Blue Economy in Scotland. The company has been active in international development in particular within the last five years and has built markets for renewable energy within Chile, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, and Columbia. This has involved us opening up these markets and introducing new service areas and novel technology solutions within these markets.

We have a global reputation for effective collaboration with most of the projects being delivered with local partners as well as a number of other supply chain companies. This work has built an extensive delivery partner network within these countries as well as within Scottish companies. The company has a strong environmental background and ethos and are committed to ensuring the sensitivities within the environment and culture in each market are respected.
