Tidal Energy Ltd’s new DeltaStream turbine uses ship propeller concept to power tidal energy

A Welsh company, Tidal Energy Limited, is about to begin testing a new 1MW tidal turbine off the coast of Wales.   While studies have shown that tidal energy could provide up to 25% of the UK’s electricity needs, the sea environment has proven to be a tough one for long bladed underwater turbines.    Tidal Energy Limited’s new DeltaStream turbine was designed in conjunction with Converteam, a company that designs propulsion systems for ships, such as the Queen Mary.

One DeltaStream unit consists of three propeller driven generators that sit in a triagular frame.   It’s a lot lighter than most other tidal power systems, and instead of being anchored to the sea floor, it can just sit on the bottom of the sea.  All of the electrical connectors are the same as those used on a ship to power propellers.  Since the blades are much shorter, thicker, and slow moving compared to other tidal power systems, there’s minimal threat to marine life.   In addition, the DeltaStream has a fail safe system to prevent too strong water currents from dragging the turbines across the sea bottom – the propellers automatically tilt their orientation to shed any extra energy caused by powerful currents.

    Dear Managers —

    VERY IMPORTANT – It is not story ,, it is fact ,, This email will make ALL OVER THE WORLD not need any more Gas or fuel oil for electric power stations

    [ New Creation – – Cost effective – Water Power Stations will change the history of electricity in very short time ]

    I suppose that this new creation of clean energy of our new electric power stations will change the history of power generation in all countries specially in USA , Europe , Japan & China ,, and Arab countries in less than 2-3 years ,,

    The main purpose of contact is to explain the following :-

    – I was registered my first research of sea water power station at Coventry University at 1997 but I ddnt follow up because I was very engaged in that time ,, but I developed my self owned researches in the same field ,, until I get a very unique new soltions which will save 100% from oil fuel consumption in any electric power station in the world and this will make the electric power bills free of charge in most of countries in the world ,,


    After years of my researches in sea water power generation plants [ I reached to a new created solution ] which will save all the fuel consumption in any country for any power station ,, that is mean we can run all the electric power station with water hydraulic power in onshore & offshore .

    My new creation will use existing power turbines fans inside water reservoir in very simple Huge tanks and will generate any power we need ,,

    I keep all details until now for my self ,, until I find the donors financial people who are accepting to be a partner for constructing our new factory to produce these new electric power plants .

    Our new electric power plants will cancel all the fuel power plants because our plants will run with zero cost [ just periodic maintenance ] & 100% no any pollution [[ 100% eco friend ] ,, and we can build power plants from 200 KW – to – 1000 MWatt ,,

    All the required cost will be the cost of constructing [ first fixed cost ] ,, then the station will run free of charge for 30-50 years ,,

    I know the value of my creation and I keep all information until now for my self and looking to move for commercial step and to be sure from my start i have to construct the first module ,,,

    95% of all parts of my new created solution are existing in the market and tested very well and already licensed & it is used in many places [ it is not my creation ] [ it is produced by other known international companies , mostly all parts are made in Europe , Canada & USA ] ,, in the same field .

    BUT my creation is [[ engineering mechanism solution – how to use these existing parts to run without any need for rivers or tidal power or sea water stream or waves …etc ,,no need for any offshore site at all ..

    so my solution will make all these power turbine generators can be constructed in offshore & onshore —- even in deserts & mountains ,,

    My question is Did your association are able to support me in the first step of producing the first module station [[ I suppose that this first station will produce 5 MW easily in very low cost ]] Also less or more than MW are possible for the first module ,,,

    I can build the module in any place in the world ?? in the mean time I can build the first plan for 1000 MWatt . in case if we sell it to any client .

    NOTE :- after we will succeed in the first module station we will get a hundreds of orders every year

    Have a nice day ,
