Each turbine has an internal fluid drive that can provide multi-megawatts of affordable, pollution free electricity. This system operates underwater, and is powered by ocean and/or large river currents. The biggest advantage to the system is once deployed and operational there is a very low cost to maintain the system.
GT Hydrokinetic, LLC is committed to building a company that provides innovative, pollution free energy solutions that are not only affordable, but maintains our commitment to a clean and safe environment.
GT Hydrokinetic, LLC is now focused on seeking new investors and partnerships to assist in licensing and utilization of the patented technology. GT Hydrokinetic, LLC is confident that this technology can be utilized to provide clean utility scale power to the world. The simplicity of the system along with its low cost to maintain makes the GT Hydrokinetic, LLC one of the most innovative, renewable energy devices available today. The big advantage over wind and solar power is the GT Hydrokinetic, LLC can produce utility scale power at a much lower cost.
GT Hydrokinetic, LLC was founded in September of 2010 with the help of a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Memphis, who was persuaded to use his personal time to evaluate this invention.
The Professor spent many hours reviewing and running calculations on this patented technology and it was clear that this hydrokinetic energy system had the potential to produce multi-megawatts of electricity. The major advantage this system has over solar or even wind is that the GT Hydrokinetic, LLC can produce continuous multi-megawatts of power utilizing constant river and ocean currents 24/7.
The GT Hydrokinetic, LLC's cost is very competitive with coal producing processes and uses today's technology along with parts and materials that are readily available. Also, it can provide clean, affordable electricity that is both economically and ecologically responsible.
GT Hydrokinetic, LLC would like to express our appreciation the follow companies for the assistance. Many of them have donated their time, materials along with their support to the success of this project.
