Guinard Energies


Recovering sustainable and low cost electricity from the Hydrokinetic energy of river, estuaries and tides.

Our hydrokinetic river and tidal turbine technology has been developed with the objective of making this electricity production cost-effective and economically viable. Our first production units are already competitive compared to Genset for non-interconnected areas. The two products available now are a 2 kW and a 20 kW device. We provide also hybrid electricity production system (photovoltaics, batteries, hydrokinetic turbines, etc.) for isolated territories and thus ensure the socio-economic development of these areas. Guinard Energies is targeting larger production units as shown in the demonstrator project for a 250 kW MegaWattBlue® P400 turbine in French Brittany. In addition, they provide hydrokinetic potential study and in-situ measurements.

P66 Hydrokinetic turbine

Description
Renewable Electricity with our In-stream hydrokinetic turbine of 66 cm with 2 kW. Strong and light, easy to implement.

This device of Guinard Energies is a 2 kW hydrokinetic turbine. It produces electircity from the water current of river or estuaries. It s enough to produce sustanaible electricity for few houses in Europe and could be use for hundreds houses in developping country. The P66 is easy to install and it is perfect for off-grid area, non interconnected. This solution avoid civil engineering of hydropower and lower the environmental impacts. This solution could be combined with solar panel and batteries to afford all the consumption needs. It is already competitive with diesel genset in remote areas.

P400 HYDROKINETIC TURBINE

Description
Renewable Electricity with our In-stream hydrokinetic turbine of 4m with 250 kW of nominal capacity

The P400 is at step of project cofinance by EU funds and Regional Funds. This project aims to demonstrate the viability of an industrial tidal turbine. Indeed, the performance of MegaWattBlue® technology combined with an innovative installation system drastically reduces the cost of tidal electricity compared to offshore (open sea) technologies. Following the test of 2018, the P400 could be deployed anywhere in the world.

Poseide - Hydrokinetic power assessment

Description
In situ measurement of water speed and extractible power, energy forecast

Poseide® is an in situ autonomous measurement device able to assess actual extractible power. The device is easily deployable, all over the world. We are able to build high resolution numerical current speed models of installation sites. The models are fed with in-situ speed and power datas from the measurement campaigns. This double expertise allows us to provide reliable information on economical indicators, such as ROI. The Poseide® device, certified by DGA (Direction Générale de l'Armement - French defense Procurment Agency), allows to reduce uncertainties relative to extractible power, and profitability of your project.
