Canadian entrepreneur Nofel lzz has invented a tidal turbine ‘Aqua Dynamo’ that can harness the kinetic energy found in moving bodies of water.
It produces 50-3000 MW of power using tidal currents under water and saves marine life.
The vertical-axis blades provide a safer marine environment compared to the blades in existing tidal turbines.
This patent pending turbine also includes designs of mini hydrofoils that change the motion of the water as it passes through the blades.
The pods generate 1 megawatt of power on a 5 m/s current. Therefore a 5 m/s current would generate 500 megawatts. This is comparable to the average coal plant, which also comes with many negative environmental implications.
How does it work?
Turbine is mounted to a foundation structure and set onto the ocean floor. The weight of the structure keeps it in place – no drilling required
Tidal currents cause the blades to rotate, powering a generator that produces electricity. The output varies however is predictable with the tides.
Underwater cables carry the electricity to an onshore station
The station is connected to the grid which distributes the electricity
