Nautical Torque Technology


Nautical Torque Technology develops innovative methods and equipment that produce continuous renewable electricity for the wholesale market.  We seek to positively impact the energy industry by commercializing a revolutionary technology which will address the shortcomings of current renewables and allow society to transition away from fossil fuel and nuclear based power production.   


Nautical Torque Technology is a clean-tech start-up company based out of San Francisco, California with a workshop in San Rafael, CA. Our patented process takes advantage of the energy potential in large particles of slow moving mass (LPSMs) by coupling the vertical force of tidal movement with the weight of the LPSM.  Our process utilizes the lifting capacity of water rather than the actual force of the water as in tidal and wave power.  Every day, LPSMs, in the form of ships, barges and tankers move up and down with the incoming and outgoing tide. Inventor and founder, Cahill Maloney, developed the concept over 10 years and has teamed up with various mechanical engineers and designers, to construct the initial proofs of concepts and working models.



Our initial milestone is the development of a single cylinder microdam prototype in order to demonstrate the scalability of the technology. The evidence and data gained from the prototype will allow us to secure funding for business development and patent filing in foreign markets. We will then partner with engineering and utility companies to construct utility scale prototypes demonstrating both the seaside tidal and land-locked Micro-dam™ versions of Nautical Torque.
