The Catamaran Name
Captona and SJI’s Marina Energy crossed paths over 6 years ago and established a strong working relationship. When Captona and Marina Energy decided to form this partnership, we named it “Catamaran” because every “MAR”ina needs a sailboat and every sailboat needs a “CAP”tain. A catamaran’s two parallel hulls represent the aligned missions of Captona and Marina Energy. This joint venture will set sail across a new energy horizon.
Leveraging Decades of Experiences
With its finger on the pulse of the industry, Catamaran can see the true value of a project and work alongside developers to help achieve collective success.
