Multifunctional hydroacoustic scanner (MHS)

The project is intended for implementing of the roadmap towards the development of the advanced underwater robotics used for the inspection of hydro technical facilities (HTF) and emergency risk assessment.

NPP “Fort XXI” proposes an innovative multifunctional hardware and software complex providing a comprehensive assessment of the technical condition of HTF underwater constructions for the safety declaration. The complex provides rapid high-resolution control of the underwater dam parts.

MHS implements the original technology of hydroacoustic surveying using the special vessel moving near the surveyed surface along the cable support. It allows to achieve the required detail at the investigation of deep-seated hydraulic structures (more than 40-50 m). (more…)

Development of ballast water disinfection in unified light and sound field

According to Global Environment Facility, one of the most significant threat for global ocean is a transfer of alien marine organisms with ship’s ballast water to new environmental conditions. This can cause severe damage for fishery and local aquaculture, cause infection distribution and other negative consequences.

Existing ballast water treatment solutions on the market have the following disadvantages: chlorine-containing compounds are formed, formaldehydes are present, high cost, low efficiency. (more…)

Distributed fiber-optic hydroacoustic sensor

The fiber-optic sensor being developed represents a distributed phase array of hydroacoustic signals. It will be exploited as a towed seismic streamer in active marine seismic survey and as an ocean bottom seismic system for acquisition of microseismic events at underwater exploration of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Its long fiber-optic cable acts as a set of sequential sensing elements and simultaneously represents the data collection line.

The system consists of three main parts, which are being developed in collaboration of different profile companies. The first part is hardware located on the surface, which includes optical, electronic and digital subsystems. The hardware part is being developed by our company. The second part is the actual sensing element of the system. It is a specially designed fiber-optic cable having a complex structure, which was given directional properties in space. And the third one is the software allowing to conduct digital signal processing in real time and also to automate analysis and interpretation of collected information. (more…)

Float Wave Electric Power Station

The project concerns the development of Float Wave Electric Power Station (FWEPS) as an installation for sea wave energy conversion to electricity with high productivity, efficiency and operation performance, applicable to meet a power requirement in different areas of the Earth; production and sale of single and multimodule FWEPS as well as electricity produced.

The module of FWEPS is an oblong axisymmetrical capsule-float which is located on the sea surface.  Inside the capsule there is a mechanical wave energy converter, consisting of an oscillatory system and drive, and an electric generator and energy accumulator. Under the wave effect the capsule-float and inner oscillatory system of the mechanical converter are in continuous oscillatory motion, while the drive engaged with the system provides a continuous turn for the electric generator.

Marine Optical Sensors of Bioparticles on the Base of DHC-technology of Ьeasurement

Developing set of sensors is based on DHC-technique (Digital Holographic Camera). DHC-technology provides registration, measurement, recognition and classification of suspended particles of different origin including biological ones in the habitat. DHC sensors are targeted on hydrobiological measurements in situ with obtaining information in real time and using of modern communication channels and different media.

Prototype of a marine power complex “Diving wing” using the energy of underwater currents

The project focused on the implementation of the road map Marinette to develop the energy resources of the ocean. In ocean currents (surface and deep) are concentrated huge reserves of kinetic energy (about 7.2 – 1012 kWh/year) that can be converted into electricity. The development of only 0.1% of the energy potential of the ocean can provide energy for 15 billion people. The entire area of the World ocean cross currents having different directions and speeds.

There are a large number of oceanic currents with flow rates from 0.4 to 1 m/s, which modern developers gidroenergostroy not even considered, as it is believed that the use of energy data trends are not yet commercially profitable, as at the present time there are no technical solutions for efficient energy conversion low flow velocities. At these low velocities the use of traditional transducers kinetic energy of the flow of water in a mechanical – hydraulic turbines – is ineffective. (more…)
