French hydrokinetic developer Hydrotube Energie has installed and connected its H3.V2 tidal turbine in Bordeaux, France.

Following the installation of the turbine in the Garonne river, the company informed its offices in Bordeaux are running on free power provided by the tidal turbine since November 2017.

The turbine houses three-bladed propellers designed by Hydrotube Energie, and can generate more than 50kW of power depending on tidal resources.

Hydrotube Energie’s turbine converts the kinetic energy of river currents into mechanical energy, which is then transformed into electricity by an alternator.

The company is targeting isolated, off-grid markets in developing countries for the application of its system.
