WHAT WE DO
In our experience no two projects are exactly the same, all have their own specific details relating to water movement and location characteristics. Placing an HEG in one location may not produce the same results in the next, as we are dealing with natural resources and forces of nature.
It is important to us that you get the best possible value from our technology. Working with you we will review your assets, understand your needs, and work out what represents true value and will provide a solid return on investment towards reaching your sustainability goals. Our business models are not about just selling you a turbine, we work hand in hand with you to enhance your business models, whether this be cost savings or additional revenue streams.
Once we understand your needs, our team of engineers, specialists and project managers will work with you, from concept to operation to management, developing your specific solution with you all of the way.
ENERGY RECOVERY FROM EXISTING
HYDRO ELECTRIC DAM TAIL RACE CANALS
The Kinetic NRG Group is focused on leveraging existing hydro power plants to generate immediate Base Load energy.
Kinetic NRG as a hydrokinetic project developer utilising either floating, fixed, portable modular units that could be placed in the tail race canal flows of existing hydro power plants. By leveraging existing infrastructure, Kinetic NRG’s goal is to focus on the substantial amount of energy potential located in the tail race canals. These projects would not involve any further environmental impact; the reservoir and canals have already been formed and hydro power plant sites have an existing grid connection, access roads and security fencing, thus minimising our project costs.
The Kinetic NRG Hydrokinetic Energy Generator (HEG) for rivers and canals allow for the introduction of a base load supply, providing a complete renewable energy solution for the most cost-effective system possible. This proprietary technology is standardised and easily scalable. Although qualifying as “green”, these products are positioned as the best alternative for decentralised electrification along rivers and canals.
The HEG was developed to produce a maximum amount of electrical power with the kinetic energy of flowing waters. Because it is powered by kinetic energy instead of potential energy, it is known as a so-called “zero-head” or “incurrent” turbine system. As such no head differential is necessary for the operation of the HEG; the course of a river or canal remains in its natural state and no high investments in infrastructure are required. Because the amount of kinetic energy (velocity) varies from site to site, a greater amount of energy is generated with a higher velocity of water flow.
