Brief Description

Description :

Technology developed for harnessing kinetic energy from seawater currents. All the sub-components were indigenously designed and fabricated locally. It is to be scaled up for off-grid units for remote coastal locations. Forest outposts in Andaman require small off-grid power modules of under 5 kW capacity.
