Waterotor: A New Renewable Energy Source

Waterotor is a rotating turbine device, that is installed in slow-moving water to harness moving water power, to generate electricity Though, it can operate in water speeds as low as two miles an hour, the "sweet spot" is the water speed of around four miles per hour

Waterotor Energy Solutions, created this product, keeping accessible and affordable electricity in mind Globally, around 13 billion people are affected with this issue, as on date Even those, who have electricity, depend on expensive, polluting fossil fuel generators for their power Fortunately, over 71 percent of earth's surface, is covered in slow-moving water, and waterrotor is ideal for these

The Waterotor uses a rolling drum-like system, to generate power, by capturing the push of water Mechanical energy from the rotating drum, is converted into electrical energy, through onboard generators It can be placed virtually anywhere, that has a water speed of greater than two miles per hour It is submerged within ocean currents, rivers and canals The Waterotor design achieves maximum torque, resulting in a high coefficient of power

This design works better than propeller or wing-like blades, which require higher water speeds, in order to match the same coefficient of power In May 2016, Waterotor Energy Solutions revealed plans to manufacture Waterotors in Indonesia If this plan succeeds, it will supply electricity to fishing villages, on the more than 17,000 Indonesian islands Another interested nation is the Philippines A government group in the Philippines is venturing to build up to 2,000 Waterotors, to bring the technology to the Philippines

Waterotor Energy Solutions also has agreements with the Federated States of Micronesia and, many other Pacific Ocean jurisdictions The main advantages of the Waterotor is its ability to use slow-moving water The abundance of slow-moving water, makes locations for the product seemingly endless As it is a mobile device, it does not require bottom fixtures or foundations It only need a simple anchoring

It can be designed as buoyant secured by anchors or, designed to be heavier than water, so that it can be lowered from a bridge, barge, boat or buoy It has structural integrity and, a very high coefficient of power in output versus size The Waterotor is environmentally friendly, because it has no high-spinning blades and, it doesn't not disrupt the fish Last, but not the least, it is cost effective, simple to build, and is a fully scalar device The invention has the potential, to provide a green solution, by using the renewable resource of flowing water
