HYDRO PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP 2

PPP SOLUTION

The Innovative HUG System creates approximately $18 million in new revenue period over three years– with an investment of $ 7 million over the same time frame; netting $11 in new money, yet this investment can be flipped as a Hydro Public Private Partnerships, earning a pre-tax return of 10% for decades. Based on these high earnings, the value of the investment will appreciate accordingly.

PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS

These take different forms. Many employ a mix of public and private funding, with the operation and maintenance of the infrastructure performed by a private enterprise on behalf of the government. The most familiar example of a PPP is the Confederation Bridge between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. But there are still relatively few existing PPPs in Canada.

Other countries, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, offer many examples of successful PPP infrastructure. Unlike most jurisdictions in Canada, these other countries already have a well-developed legal and regulatory framework for PPP investments

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

HYDRO INNOVATION POTENTIAL 2

 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

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.

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.

RING of FIRE POTENTIAL 2

RING OF FIRE ENERGY COMING

The Ring of Fire Potential will come down to one factor, which will make or break any prospects: Hydro Electricity, which is not expensive. We cannot build massive dams in remote areas at a low cost.

Enter the HUG!

RING of FIRE

Noront Resources alone spent $19 million in 2009. One industry analyst suggests that the six companies drilling in the area will spend around $250 million over five years on exploration. Since site access is by fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, the budget for transportation is huge. Noront was exploring for nickel, platinum and palladium at its Eagle’s Nest project in north-eastern Ontario.
Freewest Resources Canada Inc. stumbled upon an even more plentiful material, chromite, on a 3-square-kilometre piece of land smack in the middle of wetlands and bush.

A counter offer was made by Cliffs Natural Resources Inc., the largest supplier of iron ore to North America. Cliffs won. U.S.-based Cliffs also owns part of KWG Resources Inc.

Canada Chrome is a subsidiary of KWG Resources Inc., one of the companies involved in the $1.5 billion development, which includes an $800-million mine scheduled to go into production by 2015. Canada Chrome will operate the mine and build a 350-kilometre long haul railway capable of moving four-million tons of ore a year from McFauld’s Lake to Nakina.

Today, the roll call of companies in the area is impressive: Metalex Ventures Corp., Canadian Orebodies Inc. (Don McKinnon of Hemlo gold discovery fame and his son Gordon), East West Resources Corp., Mill City Gold Corp., MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd., Probe Mines Ltd. Temex Resources Corp.and Diamondex Resources Ltd. to name a few of the 100 plus.

The Freewest Black Thor chromite prospect has an estimated 2 km strike length.

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.
