Designed to generate power for charging batteries frequently used on Marine Seismic towed equipment, the Ampair UW100™ manufactured by Seamap is a powerful and efficient solution, providing 100W continuous battery charging power at 8 knots submerged tow speed. The Ampair UW100™ underwater generator has been manufactured commercially by Ampair in the UK for 20-years – Seamap acquired the intellectual property and manufacturing rights for the product in February 2015. The Ampair UW100™ is a three-bladed turbine intended for use in fast flowing water and is ideally suited to the demands of Marine Seismic Exploration – generating a maximum of 100W of DC current at 12V or 24V to charge batteries – whilst being towed behind the seismic vessel. The radial flux permanent magnet generator is housed within a pressure compensated oil filled cast aluminum casing. The casing is sealed with dual redundant seals throughout and there are only two transits into the generator section: one for the turbine shaft and one for the electrical cable. The turbine is bi-directional but because of flow obstruction by the body it is most efficient if facing into the water flow.
Compare power curve with other turbines
Blade diameter is an important thing to look at when comparing turbines, since it effects how much power can be captured from the wind.
