Brazilian Innovation in the spotlight during prime time.

During the second day of tests of the Current Energy Collector Unit at the Ocean Technology Laboratory of COPPE – Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – LabOceano/UFRJ, the news team from Jornal da Band, led by reporter Fernando David, covered the work and interviewed the creator of the innovation, Mauricio Otaviano de Queiroz.
The video has subtitles in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Norwegian, and Portuguese.

These were the first tests of the technology in an ocean technology laboratory. The physical quantities that, when combined, indicate the mechanical power of the model were measured, that is, its ability to generate energy over time when connected to an electricity generator. These quantities were static torque and angular velocity, measured through specific tests and a gradual scale of current speed.
