KINETIC HYDRO POWER
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.
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 cost because 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.
