What is GMax?



GMax is a new kind of renewable energy system. Harnessing the power and predictability of ocean tidal currents, GMax generates sustainable, carbon-free electricity at unprecedented levels.

How It Works

Using its patented Linear Flow Technology, GMax allows for uninhibited water flow through the vessel. Here’s how it generates electricity:

Ocean tidal currents pass through the vessel, where they produce high levels of torque.

The torque powers two permanent magnet generators, which harness electricity through a proprietary system.

The power is swiftly transferred to land through a grid connection.

Unlike other forms of renewable energy, the power output from tidal currents is reliable and consistent, as these currents are predictable as far as 100 years into the future.

Efficiency in Energy

Our mission: Deliver carbon-free electricity at a lower cost than conventional means (without subsidy).

GMax is the least expensive and most effective method of generating predictable carbon-free power. 

The levelized cost of energy is less expensive than fossil fuel energy.

Environmental Impact

Our utmost priority is protecting the environment in all ways possible.

In addition to being 100% carbon free, our vessels do not come into contact with the ocean floor. And because we don’t use any sort of turbine system, this innovation is environmentally benign to aquatic species.

  • Energy capacity: 3.3 Megawatts of utility scale electricity using permanent magnet generators
  • Energy cost: Less expensive than fossil fuel energy (LCOE furnished upon request)
  • Utility scaling: Modular configurations with multiple vessels allow for utility-scale production of 200+ MW
  • Lifecycle: 30+ years (CAPEX and OPEX included)

Opportunity

The global demand for renewable energy—and, in particular, water-powered energy systems—is ever-growing. Our aim is to fulfill this demand—and more. Our vessel does not consume any fossil fuels and is 100% reliant on sustainable, tidal current water power. Our proprietary technology is on the forefront of providing clean, renewable energy.

We are currently seeking partners for a development partnership. This would include an equity stake for the successful commercialization of GMax.
