KINETIC HYDRO POWER

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 HUG Energy System would produce the same power at a fraction of the cost because there are no expensive civil works.

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.
