The Bard/NYSERDA/Current Hydro Winter Break Gravitational Vortex Team!


Jan Borchert, Matt Deady, Tim Lynch, Ethan Husted, Eva Grunblatt, Joel Herm

We will be running water through the gravitational vortex hydroelectric model (it’s the acrylic cylinder in front of Matt) with different 3D-printed turbine blades to derive the optimal power output for the Annandale Hydro facility. The full-scale facility is currently in the FERC permitting stage with installation on the Saw Kill slated for the fall of 2019.
