Scotland's marine energy centre has forged a partnership with their Japanese counterparts which will see the Orkney-based centre help develop a Japanese Marine Energy Centre.

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has penned an agreement with the Ocean Energy Association of Japan which will see it help out with advice on design, set up and operation. 

The partnership was welcomed by Scottish government finance secretary John Swinney who described Scotland as being "blessed with some of the world's greatest green energy resources offshore". 

He added that the centre would be looking to help the new centre to deliver "safe, secure and sustainable energy". 

After being established in 2003, EMEC is currently the only accredited wave and tidal test centre for marine renewable energy anywhere in the world.
