Technology Description Their Hydro kinetically Powered Electrical
Their Hydro kinetically Powered Electrical Generators HyPEGs converts the unimpeded flow and the massive current of large deep rivers and ocean currents into useful electrical power on a large scale 4 to 8MW each This innovative system design approach is viable because of the unique power head cup design and location in which the unit is placed Unlike conventional turbine type or propeller type current generators being tested today HyPEGs can operate in fairly shallow rivers since they rotate in the horizontal plane rather than the vertical Turbine propeller type generators can only operate in water that is sufficiently deep that it is not a hazard to navigation worse they are greatly limited in power output due to a limited sized power head Once a suitable location is found a HyPEG can be made in any diameter and are limited only by their side to side clearance Additionally they need far less support structure than vertical generators
