Partnering opportunity

Small Hydropower Generator with Torque Control System

Summary

A Korean SME established in 2010 has specialized in development of technology applicable on small hydropower generator. Torque control hydropower system is completed development to complement for advanced functions. The company is looking for partnership under license agreement and commercial agreement with technical assistance to expand its overseas markets.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: SMEs and large companies - Specific area of activity of the partner: Any company and institution related to hydropower generation applicable on generator and turbine in the factory - Task to be performed: Under license agreement and commercial agreement with technical assistance, partners should apply the company’s technology on their products, such as power generator for more innovative functions

Description

A Korean SME established in 2010 has specialized in hydropower technology applicable on small hydropower generator, and the company would like to expand their business to the international markets with newly added functions of torque control systems. The existing technology lowers the efficiency of power generation, and the grid frequency is separated if the inflow flow fluctuation occurs. The developed technology enables that the system frequency synchronization out-of-sync phenomenon does not occur even if the inflow flow rate change. As described above, the technology has a higher generator utilization rate (average 20% or more) than the general hydropower generation system by controlling the torque of a small hydropower generator in response to the flow rate fluctuation without systematic frequency synchronization loss. Under license and commercial agreement with technical assistance, the company is seeking for the opportunity to expand their business to overseas markets, especially in the industry of power generation and turbine utilized for hydropower generator.

Advantages and innovations

The company’s technology overcomes problems produced by the existing hydropower technology and has features as follows: - Higher generator utilization rate (average 20% or more) than the general hydropower generation systems - Prevention of out-of-sync phenomenon of the system frequency synchronization - The flow rate fluctuation without systemic frequency synchronization loss

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
