NEDO selects IHI and Toshiba as co-researchers for ocean energy power generator

Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has selected IHI Corporation and Toshiba Corporation as co-researchers in a project to develop and to demonstrate an underwater floating-type turbine system for ocean energy power generation. The project is slated to continue until FY 2017.

 

The underwater floating-type ocean current turbine system is a power generation device with two counter-rotating turbines. It is anchored to the sea floor and floats like a kite carried and driven by the ocean current. IHI is the lead company in the co-research project and will manufacture the turbine and floating body. Toshiba will supply electric devices, such as the generator and transformer.
