Tidal Power Generation
TIDAL POWER GENERATION, AND THE RE-PLANTING OF TREES
Tidal Power Generation and Preventing Evaporation are two of my particular interests; the one being renewable energy of endless capacity, the other being to conserve our precious rain water.
My own research has proved to me that you don’t have to have a technical mind to appreciate what is going on in the world right now. All you need to do is look around and see what is happening everywhere. I can’t make a difference in the bigger scheme of things, but in a small way I do have a contribution to make to resolving the problems of Power Generation and Climate change.
Research with Stainless Steel has proved that the non-conductive parts of the generator should be replaced with Carbon Fibre for under water power generation. A coating of Anti-foul would be suitable for the Carbon Fibre components installation.
The contributing factors to be considered:
1. Lift, powered by water/electricity, to raise and lower the generator from seabed for servicing, and to improve the location of the generator to the ideal level of the seabed to maximize the power generated.
2. Locate and obtain suitable sites for locating the generator, preferably between the islands and mainland with a suitable tide flow 8 Knot, and 40M down with suitable access to the shore.
The minimums criteria is: Minimum 40 Meter’s Deep, 8 Knot’s (mean) tidal force, Maximum 150 Knot’s Wind force, Maximum 7M. Tsunami waves, and close to islands or around headlands. They must be the subjects of the non-cyclonic conditions under normal circumstances.
3. The generation of tidal power would be sourced by turbines (see www.bluenergy), and waves action to control the levels of the piles, whether the generator has to be elevated or depressed to maximise its generating power . A sequence of non-return valves co-operated with piles, to locate the turbines, also to raise and lower them from the surface for regular servicing. The position of the piles makes it suitable for various types of terrain, and various levels of water. The tide is constant, whereas the wind and solar power is dependant on the climatic conditions.
It has become more and more obvious to me , that if ever you wanted to combat the Carbon Trading, that takes place when fossil fuels are burnt, you must plant trees, in ever- increasing numbers, to maintain the balance of nature. That would reimburse the “Carbon Trading” that must go on for such a while to replace the trees that have been negatively reduced in there natural habitat. Eventually we will get ahead of all the damage we have caused, through the lack respect of nature. That coupled, with responsible power generation such as from Tidal, Solar, Wind sources etc. should do a lot to reverse the devastating consequence we now face.. It has come to me personally, that Tidal Power has awful lot going for it, as opposed to Solar and Wind power. There will all ways be the tides, maybe to a lesser or greater degree, but never the less, with power generating potential
It has come to my notice, in ever increasing obviousness, that if ever you wanted to combat the Carbon Trading, that is used in which way that fossil are burnt. That you must plant trees, in ever- increasing numbers, to maintain the balance of nature. That would reimburse the “Carbon Trading” that must go on for such a while to replace the trees that have been negatively reduced in there natural habitat. Eventually you will get ahead of all the damage you have caused, through the lack respect of nature. That coupled, with replaceable power such as Tidal, Solar, Wind, etc. should do a lot. It has come to me personally, that Tidal Power had awful lot going for it, contrary to the Solar and Wind power, their will all ways be the Tidal Power. Maybe to a lesser or greater degree, but never the less, Power.
THE ANTI-VAP SOLUTION TO WATER EVAPORATION
Polyester or Polyurethane, Lightweight Concrete and Fibreglass or Polycarbonate Reinforced Concrete considered as materials for the production of “Antivap” solution.
Polyester and Polyurethane
Polyester and Polyurethane or equivalent materials,
which float on oil or water, are UV protected and durable, and are
the products used for Swimming Pools and Treatment Tanks.
The product is self-explanatory, light enough to float on water; but does not have impact resistance to survive, on large bodies of water.
“Fibreglass or Polycarbonate Reinforced Concrete”
This material suits large bodies of water. It is impact resistant; if damage does occur; it is a simple matter of patching it with a bit sand and cement. It can be made up to any size desired, handling it being the only consideration. The centre void would be filled with waste material, Polyester, or Polyurethane or equivalent, floatable on oil or water, UV protected, and durable, of which there are considerable quantities available.
The major advantages for all the three variances of the “Antivap” are:
People have drawn my
attention to several factors that are seen as shortcomings with the “Antivap”.
Although the Antivap outweighs some of the shortcomings as mentioned.
One has to look at the “Antivap” as being a permanent or semi-permanent solution to these problems. The problems are such, that the “Antivap” should be introduced to ease our shortage of water.
Consider the DOLOSSE (A engineering solution which dispersed the wave reaction on groins and breakwater through out the world.) It has been is use for 50 + years.
A permanent solution is what is needed right now. Too long have the Governments and the Local Authorities been subscribing to solution “SHe'LL BE RIGHT, SOMETHING WILL COME UP, WE’VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME, LET THOSE WHO FOLLOW US DO IT”.
The time is right now
The theory behind this is that it is much better to have a permanent solution than one, which is renewable; the latter having various drawbacks, among them is costs. While, admittedly the cost is higher than a permanent solution once it has been employed two or three times it amortizes itself by being used on a permanent basis. The “Wave reaction” is enough to render the chemical solution ineffective. See under “Alternatives to Antivap” (Alt. 1.)
None of the alternatives have considered life below the surface. They all consider an impervious layer of polyethylene or a chemical compound.

I am passionate about helping to solve both the global and local problems concerning the environment which we have bought upon ourselves. I have an engineering background and have worked on many world-wide projects – see my website. Unfortunately I suffered a massive stroke 10 years ago and it has left me speech disabled. I am now reliant on communicating through my computer and my written words are able to be “spoken” though a voice synthesiser, which is how I am still willing and able to address meetings.
