Technology Description The Hydro-Helix horizontal axis turbines are stabilized by gravity and/or anchored depending on the nature of the site. They are pre-oriented to face the the tidal currents, and the profile of the rotor's blades can capture the flow and ebb tide. The rotor is activated at low speeds (10 to 15tr/mn) by the flow of the tide.
