To test capability to harness hydropower from surface flow of natural stream, a pilot test was conducted at Tail race channel of Kalagarh Dam, Ram Ganga River, Uttarakhand in May 2015. The test was successful and boos the mural of entire team to keep exploring the field of Hydrokinetics.
-Successfully demonstrated SHK TURBINES Turbine technology.
-Successfully collected significant dataset for scale-up
-Produced a third-party report by AHEC IIT Roorkee, providing insight into real-world operations of the technology
Develop a solution which can provide 24*7 low cost, sustainable, renewable energy was our dream and since last many years we were working to innovate something dedicated to marginal communities of India in general and whole world in particular. Till 2015, we have spent our hard eared money to develop our grass root idea but after getting 3 national awards and media attention, many angel investors, venture capitalists get attracted towards our innovation but due to their terms and conditions we have decided not to get involved with them. To install Turbines in Rivers, it is required to Justify that installation of our floating turbine does not damage forest environment and river ecology and to prove that we have conducted several pilot project in Core areas of National Parks Namely River Ganges, Rajaji National Park Core area, Chilla, Haridwar and River Rāmgangā, Jim Corbett National Park, Kalagarh, UttaraKhand.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
-Surface Water Velocity Driven Run of the Water-body Power Plant,
-No Catchment Area or Reservoir Needed,
-24*7 Power Production without any Environmental Impact,
-Lowest LCOE among all Renewable Energy Technologies,
-Easily Installed in water bodies having ~ 0.8 m/s velocity, ~ 1.5 m. depth & ~3 m. Width,
HOW DOES IT WORK
SHK TURBINES is most simplest, floating type, surface water velocity driven hydrokinetic turbine system which harness hydrokinetic energy from running water with desired efficiency. Floating type installation automatically adjust turbine submergence level according to main stream water level. Specially designed turbine water inlet remove all turbulence in water and allow laminar flow to hit turbine blades. Low RPM and triangular shape allows aquatic life to escape un-harm through turbine. SHK TURBINES Solar- Hydrokinetic Hybrid system can provide maximum power output from installation site.
