Kinetic Power of Rapids

The Kinetic Power of Rapids

This large Ottawa River reservoir of rapids can add 70 MW power without impacting on  the environment. The Kipawa  community, would benefit from its kinetic power of rapids. This would provide a return on investment within just a few years.

The 132 MW Tabaret project will eliminate the aquatic ecosystem of the Kipawa River to replace and unused 17 MW Unit and a 5 MW plant.

There are other, smarter and more reasonable options for producing hydro power on the Kipawa watershed: the HUG Hydro System. There are two approaches: one uses kinetic energy of moving water of the rapids and the second use the energy of gravity from small waterfalls.

The HUG: the Greatest Potential

Kinetic hydro power is dam-less hydro power that is converted from energy found in the flowing water currents of rivers, oceans, tides and even ocean waves. The HUG is feasible, renewable and clean alternative for low cost power production.

Imagine two, three or twenty of these barges strung along a river one behind the other without environmental impact.  Individual units come in a variety of sizes ranging  as high as 2 MW, which can support 30,000 homes with electricity.

Hydro power costs less than most energy sources. The HUG has the  lowest cost: $0.01/kWh.

HUG WAVE ENERGY INNOVATION

HUG Wave Energy

Here is the SECRET! The HUG  Wave Energy innovation adds over three times the increase of velocity created from its vortex. The turbine’s power is proportional to the cube of its average velocity. Thus, a doubling of the average speed of the flow results in an eight-fold increase in its power, which results in the lowest cost: $0.01/kWh.

The Solution: There have been a lot of wasted efforts in solving wave energy problems because of a wrong pathway. This may be the real reason why United States and Canada have not entered into the fray with the Europeans: they had not been presented with an obvious valid solution with adequate power density.  The HUG‘s compact and robust wave power plant enables over ten times higher annual energy output per ton compared to conventional wave devices.

The real advantage of the HUG is POWER from the action of the vortex in the HUG and the Venturi effect created by the shape of the HUG:hug wave energy

Now let’s explain the real reason for the HUG: HIGH POWER DENSITY Continue reading HUG WAVE ENERGY INNOVATION

HYDROGEN ELECTROLYSIS: the SECRET

Allow us to introduce hydrogen electrolysis. Because hydrogen is a clean universal fuel that can be used to power buses, trucks, cars, planes, trains,  boats and ships. There is no carbon imprint and it is renewable and sustainable.

SMOG IN CHINA

China’s ‘airpocalypse’ kills 350,000 to 500,000 Chinese each year.

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of coal, which meets more than 70 percent of its energy needs. The country produced 3.8 billion tons of coal in 2011 – almost half of the world’s total. Coal may be considered a cheap source of energy, but the air and water pollution caused by the mining and use of the mineral is devastating. According to Greenpeace, 2.5 tons of water is polluted for each ton of coal produced.

“If air pollution is not reduced we will have more and more respiratory disease, including lung cancer, COPD, asthma and even pneumonia and also heart disease, coronary heart disease,” warned Dr Bai, who is also chairman of the Chinese Alliance against Lung Cancer and the director and founder of the Shanghai Respiratory Research Institute. China diagnoses around 1.3 million new cases of chronic bronchitis and emphysema each year, and around 600,000 new cases of lung cancer. Over the last 30 years deaths ascribed to lung cancer have risen by a factor of five in China,

Everywhere you go in China, you will observe electrical transmission lines. These are all very necessary to support industrial growth. There is a high price to be paid for coal driven turbines. The sky is blue only for a short time after a rainfall because of the heavy smog overcast.
The Communist Party is worried that if they don’t solve severe environmental problems, they will be rejected by growing discontent: thousands of premature deaths annually and billions of workdays due to sickness. China’s rivers and lakes are among the world’s most polluted.

LABRADOR ENERGY POTENTIAL

LABRADOR HYDRO TECHNOLOGY

Quest1

In general, small and mini hydro power generation technology  like HUG have shorter gestation periods (approx. one year) compared to large hydro power plants (7 years). In addition, small and mini hydro give a higher return on investment due to the low capital investment and maintenance costs. The energy potential of small and mini hydro plants, which are easier to construct and commission due to simpler designs.  This keeps costs down especially in remote areas like Labrador.

New technology leads to new growth opportunities:

  • HUG is a Patented Energy System that will literally change the face of our world as we know it.
  • Energy costs of diesel electricity (not including capital costs) are very high: $0.63 per kWh vs. $0.15/kWh for HUG
  • HUG extracts power from a water flow without the use of an expensive dam: Cost $1,000,000: $4000/kW
  • Laminar flow of the HUG creates a boundary layer at the wall of the spiraling cylinder resulting in zero friction: this increases the velocity up to four times.

The next largest sector is the Small Hydro Power (1Mw to 10 MW) and Large Hydro Power (more than 10 MW) markets deploying larger scaled-up HUG models in estuaries and ocean currents. With 102 estuaries in U.S. and over 3,000 globally, tidal estuaries are ideal sources of water power adding significantly to potential production.

The HUG innovation can also be in the Small Hydro category which had a market of $14 Billion in 2008 and experiencing a 16% growth per year. In 2015, Small Hydro will be a $40 Billion market typified by tidal estuaries and large river systems.

Mining Companies like Quest Rare Minerals have a serious energy problem, which could make or break their proposal.

  • Diesel Oil must be carted inland for hundreds of miles near Lac Brisson, Uyagalatok Rapids and Voisy Bay.
  • Yet only 16 km away is a 100MW HUG solution.

HYDRO INNOVATION POTENTIAL

 INNOVATION POTENTIAL of the HUG

The HUG hydro innovation potential is an exciting breakthrough in green energy. Small batches of HUG turbines can be installed with only a short period of 12 to 18 months between investment in the technology and the time when revenue starts to flow: it is mobile, modular, relatively easy to install and highly scalable.

HUG Power House

HUG

The flowing water source rotates the turbine in the HUG, which is coupled to a submersible electrical generator. The electrical generator produces electrical power for distribution.  All this is accomplished without the use of dams.

Why not just build a dam? There are many situations where

(1) Damming of the flowing water is prohibitively expensive

(2) It is impossible because of soil conditions

(3) It is impracticable because of navigational needs for the flowing water.

(4) Good land areas for construction have already been taken

(5) Consumes a lot of time for planning and construction

(6) The life expectancy of dams are only around 50 years

PLAN NORD POTENTIAL

PLAN NORD

Over the past decades, no major breakthroughs have occurred in the basic machinery of utilities. The Helical Pathway System (Patent Pending), which has been named HUG, our registered trademark is a new good, which has never been seen before; it substantially deviates from any other good or service produced before. It is perfect for the Plan Nord.

Most inventions are not usually new: this new HUG (Helical Unique Generation) invention is a combination of two inventions: the Gorlov helical turbine (1992) shown in Diagram 4 below, which is the child of the Darrieus turbine (1926), and a vortex pathway into which helical turbines are placed: a marriage of these two inventions. The laminar flow in a torpedo-shaped construction drives a helical turbine without the use of a dam. 

The HUG adds another four to five times the increase of velocity created from its vortex. The turbine’s power is proportional to the cube of its average velocity. Thus, a doubling of the average speed of the flow results in an eightfold increase in its power. This energy, which this laminar flow ‘generates’, can be seen in the power of a tornado.Commercial HUGThe most important consideration is the Innovative HUG Power System cost: the Cost of Construction for a 100 MW project is $88.5 million, which is 22% of the typical average cost. The HUG cost of $885/kW is unusually low compared to most other hydro electric generation systems. In 2009, Hydro-Quebec (Canada) was permitted to build a number of hydro projects totaling 4500 MW, with a total price of US$ 23 billion, which is $5,100/kW.

We are at the prototype stage, having been supported by a $150,000 grant from the National Science Foundation: using three dimensional printing , followed by the construction of an actual size prototype in the St. Charles River at Wendake or at the Chaudiere Falls on the Ottawa River.
