Hydrovolts RFP

Hydrovolts Flipwing Turbine Prototype Alpha-1C during tow test near the Port of Seattle
Yesterday we put out an RFP for the design and realization of a sensor system on our Alpha-1C prototype.

Hydrovolts is seeking a Contractor to design and install sensor and data collection capability on a submersible hydrokinetic turbine to measure rotor torque and rpm while operating in water flow rates between 1 and 8 knots of current speed. The deadline for Proposals is April 30, 2010 and the selected Proposal will be announced May 3, 2010 with work to begin immediately.
We expect a lot more work of this kind in the future as well; the ideal solution will be reusable on this and future machines. See the RFP for more details or contact Hydrovolts Director of Engineering' Brian Peithman at 206-336-5560.
