Work on Concept Hydropower Turbine Initiated

We have been heavily involved in the conceptual stage of a new type of novel energy conversion device for hydropower applications. The twin contra-rotating tidal turbine initially developed for bi-directional tidal flows has been reconfigured for unidirectional flows. This has led to a substantial increase in efficiency.

The development of this device has progressed rapidly from feasibility stage to concept development. Experimental validation of the hydropower turbine is planned for May 2014 at Gdansk in Poland.
