AXIS ENERGY PROJECTS EXHIBITS AT RUSHLIGHT CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION 24/01/2020

Axis Energy Projects will be exhibiting at the Rushlight Show, in London on January 30th.  In its 11th year, Rushlight brings together cleantech developers and sustainable solution providers, with the investment community and businesses looking to source suppliers and partners.  Rushlight’s sponsors include Innovate UK and the UK Department for International Development, BEIS and Carbon Limiting Technologies.

John Baross, Founder and Managing Director of Axis Energy Projects, will also be presenting at Rushlight.  He will be talking more about the company’s Tension Leg Buoy technology that is being developed for deployment in the Floating Offshore Wind sector. 

The Axis TLB™ system is a robust, proven substructure and mooring system that provides controlled stability, roll and pitch. It comprises a subsurface buoy that supports the wind turbine. The buoy is fixed, by tensioned tethers, to a modular gravity base anchor / foundation on the seabed.

The development and commercialisation of the TLB™ has received grant and advisory support from BEIS through its Energy Entrepreneurs Fund that specifically focuses on early stage low carbon technologies.

The TLB™ is lower cost than other Floating Offshore Wind designs. Additional benefits are its off-site pre-cast fabrication, a relatively small seabed footprint, no need for piling or jack-up vessels and a simple decommissioning process.  It also offers the potential for wave power.
