transforming energy production

Delivering Net Zero

Seamach Energy is a UK based engineering firm specialising in renewable energy, with extensive expertise in high energy electro-mechanical and multiphysics design, including nuclear fusion.  Our cross-field engineering experience has fostered a broad perspective on the science of producing clean energy, as well as work in relation to decarbonisation.

Since 2016 we have been investigating ways in which floating offshore wind can be made more economical and productive.  Taking a fresh look at wind turbine technology has enabled us to design and patent a next generation 50MW wind turbine that only requires 50m blades. This represents a potential game changing opportunity in relation to build and operational costs resulting from a significant uplift in the generating capacity per installation.

Whilst our turbine design can be deployed on land and offshore, it is noteworthy that 80% of offshore harvestable wind is found in waters deeper than 60m, which is the limit for fixed bottom wind turbines.  

We have therefore paid particular attention to floating energy solutions, given the expansive opportunities for wind farming in waters deeper than 60m, away from shoreline visibility.

technology: 50MW wind turbine

Seamach Energy’s 50MW turbine delivers step changes in turbine output and efficiency, particularly at whole farm scale.    

The turbine can be deployed on land and offshore.  With the offshore version, our floating platform architecture opens up opportunities to co-locate other forms of renewable energy production - such as solar, wave and green hydrogen – without having to increase platform size. 

Compared to a 1GW bottom fixed wind farm using 10MW traditional style wind turbines, our design would generate 35% more energy per year, require five times fewer installations and produce a lower LCOE.  The turbine’s core performance metrics have been independently investigated and verified.

team: engineering a global future

 

We are pleased to welcome John, Charles and Richard to our management and advisory team.  They are world class individuals who bring a broad range of international experience to the firm.

​Our strategy focuses on the development of floating offshore wind and hybrid opportunities. UK and European patents have been granted; additional international filings have been made, and an extensive IP pipeline is now underway.  We have an ambitious enterprise roadmap in keeping with our aim to become a leading force in renewable energy.

We look forward to engaging with like-minded individuals and organisations who, like us, want to make a serious contribution to the challenges posed by global warming, energy poverty, and the need to achieve Net Zero.
