The objective of this paper is to introduce an environmentally friendly Helical Turbine that has been developed to operate in free or ultra low-head water currents without dams. The turbine is a cross flow unidirectional rotation machine that makes it particularly valuable for ocean applications, such as reversible tidal streams in ocean bays, estuaries and canals, streams in open ocean, underwater currents generated by wave fluctuations etc.
