Technology Description HydroVenturi marine system a submarine Venturi is used to accelerate the water and create a subsequent pressure drop which can be made to drive a turbine This design does not require impounding large bodies of water to extract energy economically nor does it require submarine turbines or submarine moving or electrical parts Expensive maintenance operations that typically arise when complex mechanical systems are submerged in a marine or river environment can thus be avoided This is expected significantly to reduce total system lifecycle costs and eventually enable HydroVenturi to generate electricity at costs competitive with fossil fuels with low recurring maintenance or fuel costs
