|Technology Description|| The Aquanator is a proposed device using hydrofoils (an underwater version of airfoils) to generate electricity from water currents. 'Aquanator' is a trademark of Atlantis Resources Corporation Pte. Limited. The Aquanator use a series of aquafoils (lift vanes) mounted on a belt or chain which slides on an oval track. The structure is mounted completely underwater. When the tide shifts the belt rotates in the opposite direction. Flows of about 1.0 m/s will rotate the aquafoils and generator, producing 1.0 MW of electricity.
