WHAT FUTURE OUR OCEANS? - The versatility of SeaVax™ is enhanced using a modular approach that helps us to develop these ocean going machines into an economic tool for the long-term prosperity of all fishing nations in the drive for a truly sustainable, circular economy.

Beachy Head lighthouse, now redundant



WE'VE SEEN THE LIGHT - Terry had seen the lighthouse in 2016. Nice 'T' shirt. In 2020, Terry continues with his volunteering for the Cleaner Ocean Foundation, also helping people in the Eastbourne area to get fitter as a personal trainer from 2020.






Terry became involved at a very early stage of the project helping with the construction of a water test tank and robot lab and physically building many of the eroded walls to bring them back to full use.


In 2016 Avaaz offered to help raise funds to take the concept further and that led to a Horizon 2020 application - and is likely to lead to other drives to raise additional funds.


Currently the project is negotiating for a launch site, with agents instructed to pursue recently identified venues.
