EUROSTARS. Technological partners for the design and development of an hydro-generator with an innovative efficient horizontal reaction turbine
In this line, the company is preparing a Eurostars project whose main objective will be to develop, manufacture and commercialize a new generation hydro-generator with efficient and innovative horizontal reaction turbine. Due to its design and characteristics, this hydro-generator will have the capacity to work in all sort of rivers -low and high speeds-, getting the most from the water resource.
The newly developed hydro-generator will lack complicated mechanisms and will have a simple installation. It is intended to be a compact, practical, scalable and efficient hydro-generator, therefore economic and affordable to the final consumer. In this way, a high commercial and industrial interest is expected.
The new hydro-generator will use properly the hydrodynamic phenomena that exist in the environment, making the hydrogenerator more efficient. In addition, new materials and new technologies will be used for their manufacture (such as graphene and grapheme-related technologies). Besides, new methodologies of technological development are intended to be used, among which it might be found the first instance computation, numerical analysis of the physical process (fluidodynamics), numerical simulation, etc.
The company, that is very active in R&D and in the development of new projects, has already a patented turbine and will start its commercialisation in South Korea in the short term. The company is active in the renewable energy sector, which provides the required expertise to lead this Eurostars project.
Currently the company is looking for technological partners that may help in the development of the watertight generator with horizontal symmetry and in the development and manufacture of complex geometry conduits. They are open to any kind of partner and nationality.
