Title: Blue Motion Energy Marine Turbine
Blue Motion Energy makes use of ocean currents and therefore applicable worldwide at a large scale. The tidal current plant consists of a marine turbine and dams placed in a funnel shape. Partly the stream flows along the dams. The funnels provoke a flow acceleration consequently enhancing the power. The power equals the cubed flow velocity. A pilot test at a scale 1:100 has confirmed the hypothesis and the energy balance. Also a feasibility study has shown that large amounts of energy can be generated with relative low investments compared to tidal power and wind turbines. Blue Motion Energy is therefore a break through in large scale, renewable and economically viable energy production.
