Evopod wins the "Environment Award"

Oceanflow Energy Ltd won a "Environment Award" at a local awards ceremony last night that was hosted by One North East. Graeme Mackie received the award during a ceremony that included a speech from TV’s Alan Hart-Davis and showcased our regions hottest business prospects for 2009.

We were happy to accept this award with great pride for our region which has not only a very rich history of important engineering developments but also we feel an even brighter future in renewable energy technology.

The night capped a very important year in the development of the Evopod Tidal Turbine whose last stages of development and sea trials were partially funded by a Research and Development grant from One North East.

The money has seen Evopod go from strength to strength so we’d like to say thanks to One North East for supporting our devices long-term development.
