Bourne Energy's portable hydro power plant

Bourne Energy's portable hydro power plant | BOB to BOL by BOV | Scoop.it

Bourne Energy backpack Power Plant:

 

Type 1 (BPP-1) is a man-portable renewable energy generator
only 3 feet in length and weighing less than 30 pounds. Each unit is self-contained with its own integrated power, control, cooling and sensor systems. The unit collapses into a backpack size module with the generator, hub and folded blades stored inside.
The unit produces approximately 500 W/unit high quality continuous power
depending on river current. The BackPack Power Plant can be set up singularly or in arrays of over 30 kW.


Type 2 (BPP-2) measures only 3 feet in length and weighs less than 25 pounds, approximately 10% lighter than the original BPP-1.
Like its civilian predecessor it is self-contained with its own integrated power,
control, cooling and sensor systems. The unit collapses into three major parts which slide into a large backpack. The BPP-2 produces up to 20% more power (600W) and can be set up singularly or in arrays of over 20 kW. The BPP-2, which operates silently with no heat or exhaust emissions, is 40% less visible during operation and can also be bottom mounted to be totally invisible.

Great stuff! I'd like to see that running.
