The kinetic energy of tides and rivers
The potential of hydrokinetic river and tidal turbine
Hydrokinetic energy - a renewable resource
The force of water, hydrokinetic power, can be harnessed by tidal and river current turbines and converted in electricity. Rivers and marine currents are significant resources of energy, the world capacities are estimated at over 120 GW for Oceans only.
The whole team of Guinard Energies is working to recover this energy. Our hydrokinetic river and tidal turbine technology has been developed with the objective of making this electricity production cost-effective and economically viable. Our first production units are already competitive compared to Genset for non-interconnected areas.
We provide hybrid electricity production system (photovoltaics, batteries, hydrokinetic turbines, etc.) for isolated territories and thus ensure the socio-economic development of these areas. We are targeting larger production units as shown in our demonstrator project for a 250 kW MegaWattBlue® P400 turbine in French Brittany.
