Launching Seed funding!

We are very excited to finally share with you our upcoming Seed round!
We are raising £2 million to accelerate the next phase in developing the world’s most efficient, zero emission, fuel agnostic engine to decarbonise industry, power & transport. 

Exciting developments!

We are launching a Seed round now to maximise the impact of two very exciting opportunities.

Firstly, we have been accepted onto the Decarbonizing start-up program with Mitsubishi Corporation &  NYK Line through SBC. This strategic partnership simultaneously offers the potential of a long-term partnerships with global leaders in high performance engine production and a leading shipping fleet. 

Secondly, we have won a Clean Maritime Demonstrator Competition, a £350,000 grant to develop our zero emission, hydrogen/ammonia auxiliary engine for the marine sector. These funds will provide match funding for this project. 

Seed funding of £2m

So what are the plans?

We are looking to raise a total of £2 million to delivery the Phase 2 Engine. This will be the lab demonstrator which will form the key for future field trials. 

The round will be made up of:

    1. Existing investors – Our existing investors include both Angels & Crowdcube. We have completed two very successful and oversubscribed crowdfunding rounds so far and very excited to be doing a third. 
    2. Strategic & Institutional Investors – We are in discussions with a number of Corporate, early stage VC and Angel syndicates to complete the round.

Deliverables achieved last round

There were 3 core objectives which needed to be achieved over the last year and we are delighted to announce, we have exceeded targets! 

The three specific required deliverables were:

  1. Validate our engineering methodology – our rapid pace of innovation relies heavily on a process of simulation and modelling. We validate our predictions accurately reflect real world test results and with a very high degree of accuracy. 
  2. Manufacturability – We produced the parts we need to the tolerances and in a form which will be scalable and economical. this is especially critical for the ceramic components.
