Early Stage Startup





Tagline

The Slow Mill generates wave energy in a cost and eco friendly way.



Elevator Pitch

The Slow Mill is a wave energy converter designed to harnas difficult North Sea waves, using the orbital wave motion to avoid acceleration and deceleration losses. It's made from relatively light maintenance free composites materials and doesn't need a lot of energy to get moving, saving cost and increasing performance. It has a patented blade system that quickly builds up high resistance to waves to extract maximum energy, not only from the surface but also from the energy rich column just beneath. (Dry)dock repairs are not needed as it has mainly off the shelf components used in the offshore industry which can be replaced at sea. There's no need for underwater operations either as it's designed to be installed, maintained and operated from the surface. At current subsidy levels the Slow Mill is expected to earn itself back within a couple of years.

Product

A Wave Energy Converter for moderate wave climates



Why we are ecofriendly

The Slow Mill harvests worlds last untapped but huge sustainable energy source; the waves! Designed for the North Sea, it's able to greatly enhance the offshore wind farms to be build in large volume the coming decades. Purpose of its design is to make offshore energy economically attractive to invite investments of scale in an industry that fights climate change.
