Low head, Eco-friendly hydropower
inspired by nature.

Resilient, cost-efficient hydroelectric turbines designed to power businesses, communities and inject energy into the grid.

Diagram White.png

An eco-friendly way to harness energy from rivers and canals with a low height difference, as a standalone project or a cluster of turbines powering entire regions. A single turbine can generate from 15 to 70 kW of constant energy around the clock.

Core Unit

 Premium efficiency  Generator and Gearbox for 24/7 operation


Sluice Gate

Automated sluice gate for flow control


Low Flow

A 1,5m3/s flow is sufficient for our smallest turbine


Low Head

A 1,5m height difference is enough for our smallest turbine

The Pico Turbine

For any project of 5 kW and less, we are developping a new branch of Turbulent: Turbulent Pico. Click below if you want a small turbine to power your household or a small community!

Sustainability - We call it Living Rivers™

Since the creation of our technology, our mission has been to shift energy production towards a cleaner source, that is respectful for the environment, for the communities and for the water life.​ We do not only strive to minimise our impact on the rivers and their surroundings, but also to improve their quality and to benefit the region.

Thus, we develop Living Rivers™
