Title: AN ENERGY GENERATING ARRANGEMENT POWERED BY TIDAL WATER AND A METHOD FOR PROVIDING SUCH AN ARRANGEMENT
Abstract:
An energy generating arrangement (100) powered by tidal water, comprising a turbine unit (120) mounted in a fixed structure (110) which separates a first (130) and a second (140) water masses, has been disclosed. The turbine unit (120) is arranged to be turned within the fixed structure (110) about a substantially horizontal axis (180). The turbine unit (120) may be mounted in a substantially cylindrical assembly (150), and the fixed structure (110) may be provided with a substantially cylindrical cavity, configured to accomodate the cylindrical assembly (150) in such a way that the cylindrical assembly (150) may be turned within the cavity. A method for providing such an energy generating arrangement (100) has also been disclosed.
