  • Patent number: 7597532
    Abstract: A cantilevered power generation system and the support therefor comprising a clamping frame with first and second jaws that are relatively moveable and which permits the system to be mounted to a support located on or adjacent a shore line or water way so that power generation apparatus supported within the system can be positioned in the moving flow of water to generate power. The first and second jaws of the clamping frame support allows the power generation apparatus to be mounted adjacent a moving waterway and removed, as well as movable from one location to another and also allows the power generation apparatus to be raised thus permitting the repair and/or replacement of parts.
