Anemoi Renews Rotor Sail Testing Base with Port of Blyth

Anemoi Marine Technologies has extended the lease for their land-based Rotor Sail test facility at the Port of Blyth following a period of growth for the business.

Anemoi is an award-winning global provider of proven wind technology for the shipping industry. For nearly 10 years Anemoi’s test facility has been based at the Port of Blyth, which is a leading offshore energy support base. The collaboration has been instrumental in bringing Anemoi Rotor Sail Technology to the market as the London-headquartered business takes huge strides towards future proofing the shipping industry. The location at the Port of Blyth obtains similar wind conditions to those experienced at sea, which allows Anemoi to test and research the performance of Rotor Sails in a safe and controlled environment. The facility, which houses a full-scale folding Rotor Sail, continues to play an important role in the development of Anemoi Rotor Sails.

It's fantastic that Anemoi will continue their operations here at the Port. Anemoi plays a key role in decarbonisation within the maritime industry and we are proud to facilitate forward-thinking companies who are creating a greener future. There is a growing cluster of pioneering businesses along the estuary that are leading the energy transition from Blyth.
