TRL 5/6: System Integration and Technology Laboratory Demonstration
Technology Description The UEK Dual Hydroturbine System is designed to operate as a 'Stand Alone' facility installed in a current of four knots or better. The twin UEK System design can accommodate velocities from four knots up to eight knots. The device is optimally designed to address current speeds of five knots (approx. <2.5m/sec.). Various other applications of the UEK Systems (Ocean, Tidal, and River) include, control of anoxic water; reverse osmosis fresh water systems; irrigation projects; hydrogen produced by electrolysis; hydraulic driven power systems for logging and mining operations.
