Who We Are
Dr. Ramez Atiya – Chairman and CTO
Dr. Atiya developed the ‘Halcyon Free Flow Cycle’ in collaboration with Alstom Power, the world’s leading hydro turbine manufacturer. His research on the application of large diameter piling methods to tidal range power plant construction has resulted in the development of the ‘Halcyon Enclosure’, which offers steep reductions in the cost of civil works and greater potential for world-wide deployment. He holds patents on the ‘Halcyon Free Flow Cycle’ and the ‘Halcyon Enclosure’ in the US, Canada and several other countries, and received his PhD from the University of Utah.
