NIEMIC ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES
The NET PowerSphere™ uses a proprietary spherical turbine with a carefully grooved surface to collect the energy from the flowing fluid and spin the sphere. The sphere is connected with a unique drive train which turns and is geared to spin the generator arm to produce electric power.
This device is a major improvement over the standard blade or bucket on a shaft turbine which is used in hydropower systems and the pin wheel turbine used in windmills. The system can work efficiently in slow flow and low pressure and at higher flows and pressures. Operating and maintenance costs are next to nil and emissions are nil. Investment and capital costs for plant and equipment per watt are less than $0.20 which compares favorably to wind at $7.00 per watt, solar at $10.00 per watt, and even fossil fuel plants at $1.00 per watt.
Applications are manifold. The initial designs and systems will be medium size facilities of 5 to 10 megawatts. NET provides instant power to any location with a fluid flow: hydropower, tidal flow, streams, and industrial, commercial and residential closed re-circulating fluid streams.
NET is a German-American company with offices in Houston and Hannover. It holds the proprietary technology for power generation which uses its innovative spherical turbine in a pipe which spins under the flow of fluids. The spinning sphere is connected with a proprietary drive train to a generator outside of the pipe which produces electric power. NET licenses the technology to manufacturers and distributors.
NET has a creative and innovative team of professionals and entrepreneurs with broad experience in the development of technology and taking it to market.
