ORION Project

An information-packed website to help ORION Clean Energy Project communicate with a range of audiences.

Project Overview

NB worked alongside Shetland Islands Council to develop a new website for ORION. Clarity and Communication were at the heart of the design and all content, providing a platform for the project to outline its objectives and ambitions to both the local community and the wider industry.


Throughout the various design phases of the website, it was easy to see why NB Communication has a fantastic reputation across the islands and beyond. What especially drew us to them was their being based in Lerwick meaning they are directly connected to Shetland and its community just like ORION. The entire NB team was great.

Project manager Kylie Wood was an absolute joy to work with and kept in constant contact to make sure the project followed the timeline with all its different, sometimes complicated, elements. I am incredibly impressed with how amazing the website looks and flows to create the feel of the project. The added benefit of ease in changing content and resources will help expand the website to match the continuous development happening within ORION.

A clean and crisp design, the ORION homepage clear displays all the key information the project is looking to communicate, whilst the copy has been developed with the local community at the centre of all information.

Interactive map

NB crafted a bespoke interactive map of the island, showcasing the key locations within the ORION project. Each icon clicks through to addition information about the location, helping the community understand the site’s purpose.

Telling ORION's story

ORION will place Shetland at the heart of cutting-edge clean energy production. With bold plans to develop a new industry, create hundreds of jobs and export clean affordable energy, the project’s story has been brought to life through NB’s team of copywriters.

Bespoke infographics

Due to the nature of the industry, information surrounding the project can be complex and difficult for the general public to understand. Our design team worked hand in hand with ORION’s in-house staff to create engaging and simplistic infographics – focusing on the content that matters.


The website contains many diagrams and graphics to help convey the different elements which make up ORION's future plans .
