Saunders Energy Limited manufactures and deploys cost effective in-stream and tidal power turbines to enable clients to efficiently and reliably generate electricity and reduce their carbon footprint. The last year has been exciting for Saunders Energy, with a series of instrumented tests on a turbine test rig in the River Arun, West Sussex, followed by the design and build of their latest production model.
Saunders Energy’s directors were contacted by Prevista’s Business Navigator, Jane West to see if they needed any assistance to support the development and growth of their business. Previously unaware of the wealth of support available to it, Saunders Energy was directed by Jane to a range of business support services appropriate to its needs.
Jane brokered a visit from the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) in January 2016, as a result of this meeting Saunders Energy are now in the processes of applying for Research and Development Funding with support from EEN. This will enable them to produce prototypes for several worldwide clients who will benefit from this type of Tidal Turbine.
