ENERGY GENERATION FROM WATER CURRENTS

ABOUT

Water is an infinite source of energy, and PIONEERS is dedicated to finding innovative ways to efficiently convert this energy into electricity.

 

PIONEERS consortium partner De Meyer NV is currently developing an integrated Green Hydropower Platform designed for various types of port infrastructure. The platform includes a turbine with an energy-efficient axial-flux engine/generator that connects to the electricity grid, thus providing electricity for instance from the water current in the lock.
