Turbine Redeployed at Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Test Centre

14 Oct

On Wednesday July 30, 2014,  the Clean Current team successfully redeployed the company’s 1.5 m turbine at the Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Test Centre (CHTTC) in Manitoba.  The unit was retrieved for inspection and retrofitted with a new heightened foundation.  Since being redeployed, the turbine is operating continuously and is delivering power to the onshore load. Clean Current’s onshore control system is also successfully varying the load to optimize energy extraction based on the constantly varying river conditions.
