It took 4 years from the conception of the idea until Sea-Lix was established. His time was used to develop the bidirectional contra-rotating twin rotor Sea-Lix turbine as a concept and to address its potential areas of application reflecting on its characteristics. In 2011, Sea-Lix moved from being an internal project to becoming a company. At the same time, the initial patent application was filed, shaping the base for the comprehensive IPR platform protecting the technology.
Sea-Lix has continued to develop its technology and addressing areas of application. Its base technology represents a platform on which products have been developed beyond that of the original tidal turbine including complete “plug-in” Energy Conversion Technologies for pressurized hydropower as well as for hydrokinetic power generation.
