35 new jobs at Ocean
UP to 35 engineering jobs are due to be created by Cork-based company Ocean Energy Ltd.
The firm has inked a multi-million euro deal to test its wave generator at an offshore marine energy test site near Cornwall, England.
Ocean Energy expects to deploy its first full-scale device, costing €9m, at Wave Hub off the north coast of Cornwall by the end of the year.
The jobs will be created in the fabrication phase of Ocean Energy's first full-scale generator.
The quarter-scale prototype generator was built by Ad Fab in Cork Dock Yard.
