INSTALLATION 

  • Drop of 1.5m to 3.5m (2 sequenced turbines are possible if 5m drop and larger flow)
     

  • Minimum flow of 1m3 (1000 l)/second constantly available throughout at least 9 months of the year.
     

  • Road nearby (to avoid unnecessary roadworks and environmental damage)
     

  • For On-Grid, Feed-in options nearby (ideally under 200m, to avoid lengthy line connections)
     

  • Ideally: 3G (or better) reception to enable remote monitoring
     

 

The Turbulent Vortex Turbine makes hundreds of sites possible that were never viable with other technologies. Because of the Smart Concrete foundation design, new sites can be developed without many extra concrete structures.

 

For a single turbine system, you only need a height difference between the upstream and downstream water level of 1.5 - 3.5 meters and a flow that is larger than 1 cubic meters per second. 

 
Single turbine in river/canal with sudden drop

In river

On land, 

short bypass/drop

For rivers with waterfall or sudden drop of 1.5 - 3.5 meters
 

Easy to develop
 

Minor modifications to river
 

Time to install: ~1 month, civil works included

Single turbine in river/canal with gradual drop

On land,
long bypass

For rivers with a low height difference of up to 8 meters over a distance of 100 meters
 

Rivers generally characterized by white water and turbulent flow
 

To assess project, we require flow and head difference of the river over a distance of 100 meters

Do you own multiple rivers and/or canals through the landscape?

 

Our easily scalable manufacturing and highly flexible, low-head design, allows us to harness the max energy potential of your streams.

If you have a canal or river with at least 5m over 100m distance (and flow larger than 1 cubic meter), we can install multiple, interconnected turbines which—depending on your drops and flow—can generate up to 2MW or more.

 

Our business is booming! With more than 15,000 requests we had to adopt an automated contact system... 

A bit impersonal, we know. But it also means that we are able to quickly find the right opportunities, speeding up process and saving you time while having our team focused in giving you the best solution!

We will ask you about...
