Marine Current Technology Design to Support the Poteran Island Economy Based on Fisheries


Article Preview

Poteran is a small island as part of Sumenep Madura Indonesia where it has the natural resorces to be developed into a sustainable small island. Increasing the local economy based on fisheries sector has a high potential to be developed. In small fisheries industry, the electrical energy is necessary needed, so that the marine power plant technology is relevant to be employed in this island. This paper describe the concept design of current power technology which is suitable to be implemented in the island consider to the enviromental sea condition. Potential current energy captured is identified based on the measurement of current speed for the short period of time at the coastal area of island. Futhermore, the turbine design of current power technology is introduced as well as the design of floating platform.
