Technology Description BioPower Systems has developed a novel singular mounting system called bioBASE This system is modeled on the seabed holdfast mechanism used by large sea plants such as the giant kelp In such systems the vertical and lateral loads that are translated to the seabed by the main shaft are re distributed into many smaller elements that engage with the bottom strata This mechanism serves to distribute the forces and alleviate excess loads The bioBASE utilises rockbolting technology for the multiple roots of the system and does not require large specialised vessels or drill rigs due to the small gauge of each bolt
