Energy from Slow Moving Water
Exposing a large energy harvesting area into the current is essential to reduce costs.
Cost efficient & Low Weight
Extreme low cost and weight to output ratio.
No visual pollution
Fully submerged power plants with whisper quiet Direct Drive Generators cannot be heard or seen at the surface.
Operation & Maintenance
Autonomous operation, maintenance friendly Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generators, Self-Cleaning Sails and Water Lubricated Sail Bearings.
Unrivalled exposed area in the energy stream, with extreme Peak Shaving facilitated by the patented Self Adjustable & Variable Pitch Sail Control System, combined with a highly efficient and maintenance friendly drive train ensures a reliable, powerful and low cost power plant.
Whisper quiet Direct Drive Generators and slow moving sails are assumed harmless to diving birds, fish and sea mammals.
The power plant operates at 15 meters depth, beneath shipping lanes, without disturbing surface traffic and activities.
Gentle to Marine Life
Slow moving sails do not harm sea life, unlike traditional turbine solutions with high velocity wing tips offered by competitors.
