Title (EN) FLOATING DEVICE FOR PRODUCTION OF ENERGY FROM WATER CURRENTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF FLOTTANT POUR PRODUCTION D'ÉNERGIE À PARTIR DE COURANTS AQUATIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an device for production of energy from currents in water, comprising a first element (10), a second element (20) and a plurality of turbine modules (750) connected to the first element. The second element is mounted on the first element in an approximately perpendicular relationship, the first element is adapted for submersion below a water surface, and an upper part of the second element projects up above the water surface when the plant is in production. The invention also relates to an anchoring device for a floating plant (10, 20), comprising mooring lines (24a, 24b) which are connected at one of their respective ends to the plant and which are connected at their respective second ends to buoys (50, 52), where the mooring lines (24a, 24b) extend substantially horizontally between the plant and the respective buoys.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif pour la production d'énergie à partir de courants dans l'eau, comprenant un premier élément (10), un second élément (20) et une pluralité de modules de turbine (750) reliés au premier élément. Le second élément est monté sur le premier élément dans une relation approximativement perpendiculaire, le premier élément est adapté pour submersion sous une surface aquatique, et une partie supérieure du second élément fait saillie vers le haut au-dessus de la surface de l'eau lorsque l'équipement est en production. L'invention concerne également un dispositif d'ancrage pour un équipement flottant (10, 20), comprenant des lignes d'ancrage (24a, 24b) qui sont reliées au niveau de l'une de leurs extrémités respectives à l'équipement et qui sont reliées au niveau de leurs secondes extrémités respectives à des bouées (50, 52), où les lignes d'ancrage (24a, 24b) s'étendent sensiblement horizontalement entre l'équipement et les bouées respectives.
