We won the Inspiration from Innovation category at the Northern Star Business Awards.

 

Our dedication to developing revolutionary new products is what prompted the Northern Star Business Awards judges to select the team and our latest MOWT turbine product, as winners of the ‘Inspiration from Innovation’ category.  The judges were impressed by the speed of development, the hands-on prototyping, and our practical approach to product enhancements and testing.

 

MOWT (Mass of Water Turbine) generates renewable energy from slow-moving water in rivers, inland waterways and offshore and can deliver kilowatts to multi-megawatts in slow moving water from scalable, modular devices.  EIP’s engineering team have been working on the product technology and in-water testing and are engaging academic specialists in the US and UK to optimise the hydrodynamics of the design. MOWT is a solution for both the public and private sectors; it offers a cost-effective renewable energy solution, enhances environmental sustainability and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. 

 

Dorothy Burke, Managing Director commented: “To win the Innovation category at the Northern Star Business Awards was a welcome endorsement for our team.  It has been a challenging year for everyone across all industries, but despite that, EIP’s engineers have managed to achieve great results developing our Mass of Water Turbine.  

 

MOWT is ideally suited in the drive towards Net Zero, powering installations and businesses across a range of sectors, such as offshore oil and gas, distilleries, aquaculture, towns, remote communities, historic buildings and Smart Cities, for example.  MOWT is in the final stages of development and enhancement and will be available in 2022.
