30 kW

DRC

USE CASE: FARMING
GRID CONNECTION: OFF-GRID
CLIENT: PRIVATE

Turbulent has been working together with a private customer to develop a 30kW off-grid vortex turbine in the DRC. The energy generated will be used to replace the diesel generators previously used for the farming activities, and turn to green, renewable energy reducing over 220 tons of CO2 each year.

25kW

Idaho, USA

USE CASE: IPP
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: PRIVATE

We are collaborating with our partners in Idaho to launch a long-awaited pilot project in the region.

 

This project leverages the abundant water resources found in the local irrigation canals to inject energy into the grid.

5 kW

Sobral Pichorro, Portugal.

USE CASE: BUSINESS
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: VALE DAS LOBAS

This turbine will generate clean and reliable electricity to power a restaurant in Vale das Lobas Nature & Health Sanctuary, in the heart of rural Portugal. creating an astonishing view for visitors and locals interested in learning more about the power of micro-hydropower and sustainability.

Coming Soon

We are announcing our next projects soon!

OPERATIONAL

110 kW

Murang'a, Kenya

With the support of the Flemish government and in partnership with G-STIC and Hydrobox, Turbulent is installing 3x 37kW Turbines in a poorly served region of Kenya.

These Turbines will ensure a constant base load in a micro-grid developed by Hydrobox Kenya, working  in harmony with other renewable energy sources.

Local communities, utilities and businesses will now profit from a reliable grid 24/7, all year long.

USE CASE: RURAL ELECTRIFICATION
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: G-STIC, HYDROBOX

100 kW

Ylang, Taiwan

USE CASE: IPP
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: SJS DEVELOPMENT

This project is the first micro-hydro power plant to be installed in a natural river in Taiwan. It generates a total of 100 kilowatts of continuous power from a single core unit installed in the Annong river, one of the most scenic rivers in Yilan County, Taiwan. The energy is being injected into the grid, generating a new revenue stream for SJS Development. The company is also aiming for a joint cooperation with other local businesses to create the first community-made micro-hydro power plant.

For comparison: by installing the Turbulent technology, the emission of 744 tons of CO2 per year will be avoided. Coming soon!

15 kW

Donihue, Chile

USE CASE: FARMING
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: PRIVATE

The turbine in Donihue, which also served as a pilot project for Turbulent,  has been active since January 9, 2018, and in full operational mode since March 2018.

 

It provides renewable energy for a local avicultural farm, and was built by local Chilean craftsmen with the help of our engineers.

The basin was made out of reinforced concrete in 2 weeks, with the core components being installed in 2 days after the delivery on site.

To adapt on the river conditions, the turbine is able to pass sand and stone debris up to 10cm in diameter.

13 kW

Bali, Indonesia

USE CASE: EDUCATION
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: GREEN SCHOOL BALI

The turbine supplies reliable energy to the Green School, the world-famous sustainable school located next to the Ayung river in Bali, Indonesia. Our 13 kilowatts vortex Turbine benefits more than seven hundred students, teachers and staff.

 

The turbine was inserted into a pre-existing concrete basin. It was custom-designed to spin in a counterclockwise direction. In addition, the installation does not produce noise pollution: it is very quiet, with minimal squeaking and vibration.

 

Finally, they will earn their investment back within four years. Turbulent is currently engaging in distributor and development partnerships within the ASEAN region.

7.5 kW

Denver, UK

USE CASE: PUBLIC UTILITY
GRID CONNECTION: OFF-GRID
CLIENT: UK ENVIRONMENT AGENCY

Turbulent has been undertaking its first installation in Denver, UK. This turbine will generate 7.5 kW of renewable energy to charge the electric vehicles and utilities of the client, which is the environment agency of the United Kingdom.

Moreover, the turbine will be used to perform fish-friendliness tests with live fish. This project is due to see the light in 2022.

5.5 kW

Otepää, Estonia

USE CASE: PRIVATE HOUSE
GRID CONNECTION: OFF-GRID
CLIENT: PRIVATE

This 5.5 kW vortex turbine provides reliable, off-grid electricity for a private house in Otepää, a small town situated in the southern Estonian hills and valleys.

 

The house is in the middle of beautiful natural landscapes and due to its remote location, our customer had to use a diesel generator in lack of better alternatives.

 

Fortunately, they had a river passing nearby and discovered the Turbulent vortex turbine. When our customer saw our viral video, he felt so inspired he started to build the civil works himself before even contacting the Turbulent team.

 

Our vortex turbine will save them 17 tons of CO2 per year.

5.5 kW

Versailles, France.

USE CASE: WATER TREATMENT
GRID CONNECTION: ON-GRID
CLIENT: SUEZ

The turbine provides electricity to the Carré de Réunion, a chemical-free wastewater treatment plant in Versailles, France.

 

Since 2017, it is the largest membrane treatment unit in Europe; a mix of green innovation beautifully blending into the classified plain of the Palace of Versailles. ​
