United States’ First Hydrokinetic Turbine Installed in Mississippi River
By December 27th, 2008Saturday, December 27, 2008 2:18 on
This turbine has a production capacity of 35 kilowatt being situated downstream from an existing hydroelectric-plant dam. The plant’s capacity will be increased by more than 5 percent because soon, will be installed another turbine.
Without the construction of a dam, these underwater wind turbines will produce power by capturing the mechanical energy of the water’s flow.
The Hydro Green company, which currently is behind the project, wants to install in the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers two six-foot hydrokinetic turbines which could produce 1,600 MW.
In the near future a guess that will be more projects which will help to a clean environment.
