Kinetic hydro power is dam-less hydro power that is converted from energy found in the flowing water currents of oceans, tides, rivers and man-made channels or conduits. Free Flow systems are turnkey renewable energy solutions that employ underwater turbines to generate electricity from the natural water currents. The systems do not require dams, impoundments or major civil works. They operate automatically, fully underwater and invisible from shore.
HUG Helical Turbine System
The Ojibways of the Pic River First Nations have just announced their intention to build a 25 to 30 MW Installed Capacity hydroelectric facility at Chigamiwinigum Falls, on the White River, in Pukaskwa National Park. The project would cost in excess of a $100.0 million dollars.
The HUG Energy System would produce the same power at a fraction of the costbecause there are no expensive civil works.
Chute-du-Grand-Calumet: 30 m narrows at island above (Near Rte 148, Bryson, QC)
The main current of the Ottawa River at this point is constricted to 30 m, which produce a very fast velocity of its deep flow.
THE HUG (Helical Unique Generation) is a new good, which has never been seen before. It substantially deviates from any other good or service produced before. Over the past decades, no major breakthroughs or innovation have occurred in the basic machinery of pipeline rehabilitation using a liner.
THE NEED: Corrosion remains the number one problem in the industry. The Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It is among the leading producers of natural gas, and monitors and controls a 20,000 km pipeline network. The problem of corrosion took precedence in the latest pipeline conference this summer in Saudi Arabia: one third of the time was allocated to this problem.
THE HIGH COST OF REHABILITATION
In January 2010, UAE-based construction firm, Dodsal, won a contract for the replacement of a 100 km, 36 inch diameter pipeline linking Abu Dhabi, worth approximately $US 85 million: $US 8.5 million/km. The HUG Thermoplastic Liner would have cost 25% to 33% less: $56.6million to $US64 million– a saving up to $US21 million and still would have generated a very high profit margin.
What is needed is a larger 2 inch gap with a lubricated slip slide, which will be extruded at the rehabilitation site and inserted overone mile.
THE HUG THERMOSTATIC LINER
Our patented technique has a larger gap between each pipe to avoid corrosion obstruction (2″ – not 0.5″). We don’t compress the whole pipeline — only the segments are compressed much like a hat is indented.
