HUG TECHNOLOGY PROJECT 2

HUG Technology

The HUG Technology Project is an Innovative Patented Small Hydro System that will literally change the face of our world as we know it.  HUG (Helical Unique Generation) is a New Good.

HUG PROJECT ESTIMATES
HUG PROJECT ESTIMATES
3,300 MWh can sustain 2,335 average households annually at 12,000 kilowatt-hours
Cost of the HUG: $5,400/kW
Development Time could be one half of the above estimates on private land.

OUR NORTHYDRO STRATEGY

  •  Stage 1   To capture energy from Run-of-River, Rapids and Waterfalls with the HUG 
  •  Stage 2   To introduce a smaller version of the HUG: for Fish and Hunting Camps                            
  •  Stage 3   HUG Hydro electricity and irrigation in remote areas: to support work in Africa.   
  • Stage 4   To Introduce the HUG Water Transfer System to crisis area
  • Stage 5   To introduce commercially viable HUG Tidal Energy

ABORIGINAL NEEDS AND CONCERNS 2

ABORIGINAL NEEDS 

 An Innovative HUG technology establishes a new needed Canadian infrastructure,which in turn implements and spins off other technologies. It dovetails into Aboriginal needs and concerns.

Aboriginal entrepreneurs may receive up to $99,999 in funding assistance For community-owned businesses, this assistance can vary but can be up to $250,000. A successful application requires a balanced financial package, involving debt financing from other sources and a minimum of 10% cash equity.

PLAN NORD POTENTIAL 2

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.

IRRIGATION POTENTIAL 2

THE GREAT IRRIGATION SOLUTION

 Irrigation Potential is not rocket science: it is HUG pumps and pipelines.The payback in GDP is enormous because farmers have only seen one dry year as 2015 in the 50 years of farming.  It takes political will.

The new patented pipeline, called HUG Pipeline require little or no huge water pumps. This water pipeline, encourages a laminar flow with little or no friction.  Now we finally have an irrigation system that require no electricity or no diesel oil.

CREE POTENTIAL 2

THE CREE ENERGY POTENTIAL

New technology leads to new growth opportunities: HUG is a Patented Energy System that will literally change the potential of the Cree Nation as we know it.

The CREE POTENTIAL
The CREE POTENTIAL

The proposed Great Whale Project reservoirs would have covered 3391 square kilometres, transforming 1667 square kilometres of land environment and 1724 km of aquatic environment (lakes and rivers). The three underground generating stations proposed to tap this water were to have installed capacity exceeding 3200 MW. There is another solution: The HUG!

PRE-FABRICATED HUG 2

PRE-FABRICATED ENERGY

Standardized pre-fabricated modules should make it possible to order this new product as a “power plant kit” just like ordering from a catalog. The HUG power plant uses standardized parts, so no custom engineering is necessary. A one-size-fits-all pathway could be ordered. In the case of wider bodies of water, several HUGs could be placed next to each other or behind each other – also at different launch times, as determined by demand and available financing.

SMALL HYDRO POWER SYSTEM

SMALL HYDRO ENERGY

The installation of most of very low head sites is technically feasible, but civil works give rise to high costs, resulting to economically enviable projects. To solve this problem, one must design a new machine using a completely different philosophy to equip such sites: the small hydro power system.

The study of current turbines reveals that they were all invented on the basis of a poor understanding of hydrodynamics, and a consequent false premise.

The new damless development of a submerged helical pathway is capable of extracting high energy from low head sites at very low cost because of a physics phenomenon, called repulsion energy, which speeds up the current at the extremity of the curves. This is an exciting breakthrough in green energy; it is modular, relatively easy to install and highly scalable.

The secret is in the natural motion of the water, which is a vortex. Water reduces resistance by curving more and more inwards thereby avoiding the confrontational resistance of straight motion. Nature has no use for the straight line: think of the water that leaves your bathtub; give it a twirl and see what happens.

The threshold velocity required to energize a turbine in fast water is 3.1 m/sec. The vast majority of river/ocean currents in the Canada and United States are slower than 3 m/sec. The HUG taps into a vast new source of clean and renewable energy of water currents as slow as 2 m/sec. previously off limits to conventional turbine technology.  Even if the flow is less than 2 m/sec, the HUG introduces the Energy Body to make a difference.
