The Tiburon Project: Tidal Electric Generation, Desalination, and Coral Reef Preservation
Tuesday, June 26th, 2012, 8:30-9:30am (San Francisco) / 11:30-12:30pm (New York) / 5:30-6:30pm (Paris/Frankfurt)
Tiburón Agua y Electricidad was established in response to a need for Renewable and Sustainable Electrical Energy produced in a way that would substantially reduce the expense of reverse osmosis desalination. Tiburón Agua y Electricidad is planning to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the proposed Hermosillo Desalination and Tidal Electric Generation Project. Their plan involves the installation of steel templates at the northern- and southernmost choke points of the Infiernillo Strait that would be electrochemically transformed into "limestone" through the BIOROCK® process. New habitat thus formed would continuously attract an increasing diversity of marine life. Turbines and Generators mounted on adjustable stanchions would be strategically placed in the tidal flow.
