Deeper Green Energy.

Atlantis is striving to become the world’s leading developer of commercial scale tidal power projects and the technologies required to economically deliver tidal current power to the grid for sale and dispatch.

For more than a decade, Atlantis has pioneered the development of tidal current power as a predictable source of reliable, economic and secure renewable energy. Working globally in the seas of the UK, China, India and Canada.

The team at SomeOne have been a class act bringing our brand up to a level where we are causing quite a stir in the green energy sector.


Atlantis owns patented technologies covering power generation, turbine deployment and turbine operation and control. The combination of Atlantis’ ground-breaking technology and track record in successful project origination and development, has created a uniquely commercial force in the marine power industry, able to develop and manage commercial-scale, marine power renewable energy projects globally.

We were approached to create an entirely new strategic visual brand identity for the organisation to signal their change in pace. In September they announced a partnership with Lockheed Martin, recognised as technology leaders globally — to deliver on their promise of bringing long-term sustainable energy solutions.

Tidal Power is different to wave based power generators as it operates on the sea bed, rather than floating on the surface. Therefore it causes very little disruption to the environment, or to any shipping considerations. Unlike wind power, the machinery required to generate the power is completely submerged and therefore preserves the natural views across the coastal areas it is installed.

There are immense currents that are permanently available to use to generate significant amounts of power. It is these tidal currents that Atlantis has unique technology to harness.

The strategic visual brand identity uses these tidal power maps as it’s design theme. SomeOne developed work across multi-channel applications — from business cards to business to digital business presentation tools.

SomeOne continues to work with Atlantis on strategic design work.

Timothy Cornelius, CEO of Atlantis Resources said ‘The team at SomeOne have been a class act bringing our brand up to a level where we are causing quite a stir in the green energy sector. Not only was the strategic response spot-on and right first time, they delivered a cohesive solutions for us under considerable time pressures — the entire organisation is delighted with the outcome and we look forward to using it to spearhead the significant developments we have in development’

A brief history of Atlantis

For more than a decade, Atlantis Resources has been actively involved in the commercialisation of tidal power technology and the development of tidal power projects around the world.

The Atlantis story has its genesis in Australia, where the early years of the company were spent developing tidal current turbine prototype designs and concepts. Scaled testing commenced in 2002 and by September 2006, after multiple iterations and some of the largest ocean based tow-testing programmes ever conducted at the time, Atlantis assembled and installed a 100kW Aquanator™ device, becoming one of the first companies in the world to successfully connect a tidal current turbine to a national grid at our dedicated test facility in San Remo, Victoria, Australia. The Aquanator™ system at San Remo provided valuable real world testing capability for our R&D, installation and commissioning teams.

In 2006, Atlantis established operations in Singapore, attracted by high quality R&D capabilities, as well as the integrity of the intellectual property protection laws.

As power began flowing into the grid at San Remo, Atlantis accelerated its R&D efforts. This led to the development of the AN series tidal power system. Instead of building scaled models or relying solely on CFD analysis and computational simulations, Atlantis took the unprecedented step of tow testing the 150kW 30 tonne Nereus™ device in the open ocean. The first tow test took place in Victoria, Australia in December 2007 and the results of this testing regime were independently verified by Black & Veatch.

Atlantis then became the first company in the world to decommission a tidal current test site in May 2008. The Aquanator™ turbine was removed and the San Remo site was decommissioned to allow for installation of a replacement system. The 150kW Nereus™ I, now known as the AN150™ tidal current turbine, was installed and commissioned at the site in May 2008.

Having brought its rotor design and power train development teams in–house in a quest to achieve enhanced turbine efficiency, we unveiled the Nereus™ II (later renamed AN150) tidal current turbine, in July 2008, with open ocean tow tests breaking our previous power output records and demonstrating an increase in water-to-wire efficiency.

In 2008, Atlantis unveiled its first AS series turbine, then known as Solon. The AS250 was tested in Singaporean waters and was independently verified as the world’s largest horizontal axis turbine ever tow-tested, and also the world’s most efficient tidal current turbine with a rotor efficiency in excess of 42%. Atlantis expanded its blade materials and design capabilities throughout 2008 delivering its first commercial results in early 2009, when we successfully tested the most efficient bi-directional tidal turbine blades during trials in Australia.

Also in 2008, Atlantis opened an office in London to focus on growing our origination and project management business arms in UK and European waters. By 2009, we had outgrown our project office and opened an additional London office close by.

In 2010, Atlantis was awarded the development rights for the Inner Sound of the Pentland Firth by The Crown Estate. This site would later become the MeyGen project, which is now the world’s largest planned marine power project, at 398 megawatts. In 2010, Atlantis also commenced its testing operations at the EMEC facility in Scotland, UK.

In 2011, Atlantis sold 90% of the equity in the MeyGen project to International Power (now GDF Suez) and Morgan Stanley, retaining a preferred turbine supplier status and preserving economic carry in the financial success of the project. In the same year, an Atlantis led consortium which included Lockheed Martin Corporation and Irving Shipbuilding secured a berth at the FORCE tidal turbine testing facility in Nova Scotia and in late 2011, Atlantis was also awarded the ETI TEC contract to conduct industry led research into rapid cost of energy reduction for the tidal power sector. In August the AR1000 was successfully deployed at the EMEC facility and was subsequently connected to grid for the first time.

In 2012, Atlantis signed strategic agreements with CECEP and Dongfang Electric Machinery Company Ltd. for the development of tidal current power in China and became the first tidal power developer to successfully complete turbine testing at the new NaREC tidal turbine testing facility in Blyth, UK.

During 2013, Atlantis has continued development of its next generation of variable pitch tidal turbine system whilst successfully completing Phase 1A of the ETI TEC programme and assisting MeyGen to progress towards financial close for Phase 1.
