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.
