FIG. 176 is an enlarged bottom up view of the flotation module of the embodiment of FIGS. Preferably, at least 30 meters of travel is available, meaning that the distance between (i) the powertake-off pulley 655 (and/or the bottom of aperture 652) and (ii) the bottom of dangling end 654 is at least 30 meters. The generator assembly 10a includes a blade assembly 14 with a head end 16 facing the oncoming flow 25 of the fluid 12 and a tail end 18, spaced from the head end 16, which faces in the direction of the flow of the fluid 12. The blade assembly 14 has a rotational axis 20 extending between the head end 16 and the tail end 18. The blade assembly 14 also has a blade arrangement, in the form of a series of independent beams 22 which are arranged in a generally helical fashion 30 about the rotational axis 20. The blade assembly 14 also includes a mounting formation in the form of a shaft 24 supported by head end bearings 26 and tail end bearings 28. The shaft 24 is connected to an electrical generator 30 via a seal 32. The generator 30 is WO 2009/062262 8 PCT/AU2008/001705 contained within a housing 34. Stay cables 36 and 38 are attached to the housing 34 and the bearing 28 respectively, which locate the assembly 10a and resist movement of the assembly 10a in the fluid flow 12. The beams 22 are connected to the shaft 24 with sufficient clearance so they can 5 rotated about the axis 20 with respect to each other.
Preferably, the hydraulic generator is in turn connected to an electric generator. The shroud, preferably, is of multi-section or unitary moulded construction, having a head end section via which a flowing fluid enters the shroud, a tail end section via which flowing fluid exits the shroud, and an elongated intermediate section extending 10 between the head end section and the tail end section, with the intermediate section converging from the head end section towards the tail end section. Preferably, the shroud is connected to the tip of each blade of the blade arrangement, the connection 30 between the shroud and each blade being a substantially fluid impervious connection. 50. The slotted ejector arrangement 102 rotates with the shroud 50. The gaps 104 between spaced apart sections 106 of the slotted ejector arrangement 102 allow fluid flowing around the exterior of the assembly 10e to effectively inject, as shown by arrows 108, into the fluid flow leaving the shroud.
Twice as many crankshaft-driven piston assemblies 507-22 can be utilized because each drum 507-23 is attached to two crankshaft-driven piston assemblies 507-22. This is the primary differentiation between this figure and FIG 10, where each drum 503-5 is attached one crankshaft-driven piston assembly 503-6. Details of the single drum/dual crankshaft-driven piston assembly PTO system arrangement are shown in subsequent figures. In the case where the flowing fluid with which the power generator is associated is wind, the power generator will be located in an open area where it will be exposed to flow of air when the wind blows. A plurality of computers, computing devices, network connectors, and/or computing resources, are stored within chamber 106A, enclosure, module, and/or container, mounted on, embedded and/or incorporated within the buoy 100. Dolor de rodilla exterior . Affixed to the top of the computing module 106A are heat-dissipating and/or cooling fins 107 that facilitate the transfer of heat generated by the computing resources within the computing module 106A to the air above the buoy.

In some embodiments, the pulleys/capstans are disposed at a top central portion of the flotation module, so that the flexible connector passes through one or more apertures in the flotation module. When waterline 1-110 rises relative to the flotation module 1-105 (e.g. 22), each crank axle, e.g. The other end of each driving rod is rotatably or hingably connected to one end of a “connecting rod,” e.g. In one form, the power generator is an electrical power generator and includes a electrical generator drivingly connected to the blade assembly. The blade arrangement, in this embodiment, further preferably includes a web or skin extending along the lengths of and connected to each pair of adjacent beams, such that the blade arrangement, irrespective of the pitch of each’ 20 beam, is uninterrupted across its surface. Each mounting formation preferably includes a bearing element connected to an 20 end section of the shaft, the bearing elements in use being mounted on an anchored support structure, such that the power generator assembly rotates relative to the support structure.
