Clean Current has developed a proprietary segmented generator for its river and tidal in-stream products. This generator is specifically designed to excel in the harsh conditions encountered in marine renewable energy applications. Clean Current has demonstrated the operational performance of this generator in tank and field tests and is now undergoing long-term life testing in a river environment.
The technology developed for this generator/motor is also ideal for applications which operate in a hostile environment where the benefits of high reliability and low maintenance are essential. Offshore wind and wave energy are two areas that Clean Current has identified as high potential opportunities. Other areas of interest include subsea pumps and motors for offshore oil and gas operations.
