The Amazon is a priceless treasure that needs to be preserved at every cost. Besides being the largest forest of the world, with the largest concentration of fresh water and to have the largest biodiversity of the planet, the Amazon forest is a life source, one of the few places in the planet earth where the nature still exercises all your magnificent force. It is difficult to explain in words that every visitor sits down when knowing the Amazonian for the first time: a power never imagined magnetism, forces, emotion, respect, vastness, life and peace. The Amazon forest copper 6,5 million of KM2, of the which 4 million are in Brazilian territory. But, in spite of the Amazon basin to be formed by torrential rivers, the quite permeable soil and the little canyons presence and falls of water, they impede the implantation of hydroelectric plants in the area. Due to vast territorial extension, the Amazonian shelters a riverside population that they don't have minimum resources of survival, among them the electric power. But, due to the difficulties of taking the electrification the those communities, and the Brazilian government's constants prohibitions to liberate plants that use fuels root, more and more it appears collections and investments in several forms of clean energy generation. This way, in order to promote the sustained development, it is that was born the ARTEMIS project that foresees the rational and intelligent use of waters and waves, with hydraulic potential bass, could have or not a low oxygen level and the presence of solid substances dissolved, with the purpose of electric power production - starting from the combination of a gas turbines system, moved H2, and moved thermal units H2. Basing your proposal, in a productive structure at a low cost, with high financial profitability, and occupying a small area, the ARTEMIS project was conceived in modules, resembling each other to protounits, that has as pattern the constructive easiness, the modular form, easy exchange, the union of innovative technologies and besides everything the capacity to adapt to the needs the generation, could be used from small units of production to gigantic, what will guide your implantation cost. Besides everything, the architecture of the project doesn't generate gases of the effect it stews. Like this, the project, while it conserves the environment using up-to-date technology for energy generation, it makes with a low cost, to maintain your process. The volume of energy, produced through this project, it is high, being capable to supply the energy consumption to this associated, this everything starting from a raw material, water of the amazon rivers, tends or not, hydraulic potential bass, creating a process that will lower the production costs energy, besides guaranteeing the quality and environmental protection. Based on a fixed platform, which operates in the middle of rivers or sea, this project was built to take advantage of all conditions generated by the seas, wind and sun to generate power. Thus, the Artemis project brings together three power generation systems: thermal system, mechanical system and photo-voltaic system. The Arthemis project is similar to a big tarantula. The body of the Tarantula serves as a fixed plat- form to generate energy through photo-voltaic panels and wind generators helical. Furthermore, there are electrolytes, inside which produce hydrogen for power generation through Stirling engine coupled to power generators, that can generate power by solar heating or the combustion of hydrogen. But not only the body generates energy, the legs of the tarantula are mobile and they follow the movements of the waves, allowing what eight legs generate energy by the movement of waves. The head of the tarantula is responsible for control of the entire complex.
