Ocean Hydro Electric Generator (OHEG)

The OHEG is a revolutionary hybrid concept using the tide to produce energy. The power is produced by using both the kinetic energy in tidal flow and the potential energy created by tidal height changes, utilising offshore storage lagoons to retain the mass of water. The structure is fixed to the sea bed and the water velocity is increased by incorporating a venturi arrangement.
See above for an artists impression of a 10MW system.

Ocean Energy Rig (OER)

The OER is another hybrid concept harnessing tidal stream with increased velocity from a venturi system, wave and wind power. This system is floating and anchored to the sea bed, being brought back to dock for servicing or repair.
Above is an artists impression of a prototype.
