- Braveheart has acquired a 47% holding in Gyrometric Systems Limited, which has developed a patent protected system of hardware and software to monitor the vibrations in rotating shafts.

The company, a spin out from Nottingham Trent University and based in Nottingham, UK, provides monitoring technology which measures the performance of drive shafts in a wide variety of applications, most importantly in marine engines, machine tools and (in prospect) wind turbines, protecting drive-trains from overload and asymmetry damage, allowing them to operate at maximum efficiency, saving energy, maintenance and capital costs.

Gyrometric already has established sales partners in Germany and Asia on which it will now build and expects to be breakeven in 2017.
