Anemoi Renewed Their Rotor Sail Testing Base with the Port of Blyth
After a period of success, Anemoi Marine Technologies has extended the lease for their land-based Rotor Sail test facility at the Port of Blyth.
Anemoi is an award-winning global provider of wind technology for the shipping industry. For nearly 10 years, our test facility has been based at the Port of Blyth, which is a leading offshore energy support base. The collaboration has helped us bring Anemoi rotor sail technology to market as a London-based company with focus on future-proofing infrastructure in shipping.
The Port of Blyth is an excellent place to do performance testing for Anemoi Rotor Sails. The location in Blyth will service a number of features, including a full-scale folding rotor sail, and continues to be an important part of developing Rotor Sails.
“The news that Anemoi will be staying at the Port is fantastic. As an industry leader in decarbonisation, we applaud companies like them for doing their part to create a greener future for us all.” – Martin Lawlor, CEO of the Port of Blyth
We’re extra excited to announce that we’ve signed a five-year lease at the Port of Blyth. As Rotor Sails come into play, it means a reduction in emissions across the world. We’re proud to maintain our ties with such an important port.
Our port serves the coastal towns and communities in Northumberland, as well as Scotland. We’re also home to a major container handling facility that is part of DP World Blyth.
The Port of Blyth is a port that operates as a division of Blyth Harbour Commission, an independent trust established in 1882. It’s one of the largest trusts ports in the UK and handles cargo across four terminals based on the River Blyth.
The Port group has a revenue of more than $25 million, driven by growth across a variety of sectors. The Port is now recognized as a major strategic east coast base for the offshore energy sector, serving clients in that industry. Other industries the company helps support include containers, dry bulks (coal, aggregates, cement etc) and marine fuels.
