Current status


The experimental campaign HAO-Laval of the summer 2009 has been a resounding success.

Results from the field tests have been analyzed and confirm the great potential of the concept (see published articles in the Links section). The oscillating-wings hydrokinetic turbine technology is most certainly promising with recorded energy-extraction efficiencies over 40%.

The success of this first development phase of an oscillating-wing hydrokinetic turbine leads the way to the next step involving the deployment in a tidal stream of a second generation prototype of increased power.
