Our Technology & Innovation Projects
We have supported advanced technology implementation from both a business perspective and engineering (hands-on) approach. The technologies are currently in ascendance and we will continue to work on such projects in support of our clients, whilst at the same time building new competencies as the market place requires.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) – Developed the Business plans and Investor memorandum for the financing a new incubator business. The client operates in the Italian and European market. A competitor study and full financials were performed, the final business plan was approved by one of the Big-4 Accounting companies and financial acquisition was supported. The system is aimed a replacing the traditional home boiler, but has the added advantage of producing electricity. The client is now a successful producer of SOFC systems operating with Natural Gas.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC)
Additive manufacturing technology for advanced gas turbines have been pioneered by our partners since 1995. The advent of High Temperature Nickel based alloys have moved this technology squarely into the field of high efficiency gas turbines. We have recently (2018) continued to support our clients in this technology, including the sourcing of Swiss Government funds to facilitate the R&D programs to extend the technology into higher temperature materials and advanced turbine cooling.

Low Carbon Technology & Green House Gas Reduction
The current focus is on assisting our clients in the development of Low carbon and Zero Carbon Emission Power Devices to align with the drive towards de-carbonising. The advent of renewable energy, forecast to deliver over 70% of the world’s power by 2050 requires the utilisation of novel technologies for balancing such power sources; when the renewable resource is unavailable. Such balancing systems must also be low or zero carbon.
