About

Nowadays, Electrical power generation from renewable sources is taking into account due to phenomenon of global warming and climate changes. But, there are many limitations for renewable   energy  power  plants  such  as   capital  costs  or  the  upfront  expense,   low efficiency  (Solar panel efficiency is just  35% and wind farm efficiency  is maximum 63%), renewable  energy  production is unstable  because  they  are dependent on wind and sun intensity, and  renewable power plants cannot be established anywhere due to geographic and climate constraints.

We overcome all of these obstacles by designing the Marine Acrobat with these features. 

  • Marine Acrobat efficiency is 90%
  • Marine Acrobat performance is based on earth gravity and buoyancy force in the water. These two forces  are  available  with  specific value. Therefore,  the  generating  power  would be completely stable
  • Marine Acrobat project can be implemented anywhere all over the world. It just requires  a small swimming pool with water or mineral oil in the desert !!! 
  • Marine Acrobat cut the capital costs, as it does not need infrastructure and can be established near to consumer units. Therefore,  the transmission  and  cable  costs will cut. 
  • Marine Acrobat  is  100%  Eco-friendly.  It's  performance is  based on  natural   physical  forces with a source of Oxygen  with no water consuming!  
  • Marine Acrobat  is fully  automated  and  can  produce Electrical energy  without human intervention.

Marine Acrobat employed earth gravity to going down into water and it will come up through filling four balloons by Oxygen capsules. This continuous vertical movement is able to rotate turbine propellers, which is equal to  electricity  generating. The  rated  power of generators and water depth will determine the rate of generating power. In this system determination of center of gravity  to reach the power stabilization is very important. 

Marine Acrobat  is  programmable,  smart   and  sensory   robot   which  is  able  to   detect floor,  surface and is equipped to motion correction system  in  case  of any deviation from its route in water.  Marine Acrobat is self-charging  and it does not need initial charge even for the first time launching!     

Every suspended object in water is involved with two forces. First, gravity which tend the object  to the bottom and second,  buoyancy which  is an upward  force.  The  magnitude of these two forces on the mass’s  object gives the Marine Acrobat capability to  have  vertical movement in  water.  So, if  the  gravity  is higher than  the  buoyancy force, then  the object will tend to bottom, otherwise it will come up. The weight factor has a key role in this process.    

   This project inspired by fish body structure. Swim bladder is an organ like a bag inside a fish which can be filled through fish blood oxygen to control the fish buoyancy.  Therefore, fish  dose not sink and is able to go up  and  down or stays  at current water depth without having  to waste  energy  in  swimming.  We inspired  by fish swim bladder performance in Marine Acrobat buoyancy control to have vertical movement in water!        

 Marine Acrobat is a programmable Robot which consists of more than 2500  components. The design of Marine Acrobat was carried out based on barriers to renewable green energy in four research areas of  Microelectronics, Electric power, Mechanic and Pneumatic by the our  technical  team.  Marine Acrobat   designing  process is  done  based  on   Eco-friendly materials with emphasizing the high durability and stability features.

The  most  important  year  for  Electrical  power plant history was in 1831, when for the  first time the Electric generator was invented by Michael Faraday. The world's first hydroelectric power scheme was developed at Cragside in England by William Armstrong in 1878,  and the first coal-fired public power station was built by Edison in 1882. Electricity was generated by a  nuclear reactor for the first time in 1948 at the  X-10 Graphite Reactor in the United States, which  was the first nuclear power  station to  power a light bulb. The first wind turbine used for the production of electricity was built in Scotland in 1887 by Prof James Blyth in Glasgow. In  2007 the Nellis Solar Power Plant is  the first photovoltaic power  station which is located  in  Nevada,  United States.  The  world's  first  marine  tidal  turbine  to  generate   electricity established in  2008  in Scotland  by  the European  Marine Energy  Centre (EMEC).  We  will  establish  the  world's  first  power  plant  based  on  gravity  and  buoyancy  forces by the Marine Acrobat  with  capacity  of  30 kWh  as  the first  phase, If  you help us to bring this project to life.

Marine Acrobat project team has three objectives to achieve the final target which all of items need to funding source.   

  • Marine Acrobat is able to produce 2 kWh electrical energy per hour, currently.  The new version is designed for 5 kWh and we need to prepare new generators. 
  •  In the prototype design, we  made many  pieces of the project such as  propeller by 3D printer, but these components must be made by casting method in commercial version. 
  • Our  technical  team  must  manufactures six  units  of Marine  Acrobat to  establish  the world's first power plant based on gravity  and  buoyancy  forces  with 30 kWh capacity. 

Our team is eagerly looking for sponsor companies to establish Marine Acrobat power plant in all over the world. (Please send email to us, if you think that you are qualified.)

 Marine Acrobat Package

Statue of Appreciation and Thanks 

This package includes the Marine Acrobat package plus a Statue of appreciation and thanks based on your name. 

Special Thanks to Marine Acrobat Research Group

We would like to express our special appreciation  and  thanks to Marine Acrobat  research group: Dr. Nima Bahrami, Dr. You Kok Yeow , Dr. Hamed Mirzaei,  Dr. Nor Hisham khamis and  Dr. Fakhri Lakzadeh. Without  your  support, encouragement  and  consultation, our success wouldn’t have been possible. 

Risks and challenges

We’ve been working hardly for the last two years to evaluate the quality, stability, durability of Marine Acrobat project. Through building up Marine Acrobat prototype, we proved Electrical power production based on our ideas which became possible. Now, we overcome all the technical challenges. But, any big innovative project always faces to unexpected challenges that many of them are related to bureaucratic steps that needed to be taken each day. Electricity production based on the Marine Acrobat method is completely new and our legal team must get many certificates from government and subordinate offices due to power station establishment.

Power plant establishment to other countries is another challenge for us. The number of sponsors who accept the risk for the new methods are limited and countries have different investment law.
