Fish Friendly Free Flow Turbine

Innovative turbine system with uniquely high efficiency

Identification

FishFlow Innovations developed an innovative and patented design that also makes the turbine fish-friendly and silent. The turbine can withstand the incredible forces occurring at open sea. The revolutionary design saves on construction costs which makes it possible to generate electrical energy at a very competitive price per kWh. The impeller of the FishFlow Innovations Free Flow Turbine is bi-directional; it generates power when rotating clockwise as well as when rotating counter-clockwise. This means it generates electrical energy during ebb and flow when in use as a tidal turbine. The unique and patented shape of the impeller doesn’t only make the turbine fish-friendly but also makes it highly efficient. The specific shape of the impeller blades do not induce cavitation and the water leaving the impeller is released in an almost straight beam.
