TECHNOLOGY

Hydroelectric turbines for green, decentralized, off-grid living.

We develop cost-effective hydropower plants for that can be installed in any river, canal or waterway that has a drop between 1.5 - 5 m. You can generate electricity using an individual turbine or a network of multiple turbines for higher energy demands, all designed for durability and low maintenance.

The vortex turbine.

Trash Rack

Protective trash rack for large debris. Small debris can safely pass, minimizing the risk of blockage

Core Unit

 Premium efficiency IE3 Generator and Gearbox for 24/7 operation

Sluice Gate

Automated sluice gate for flow control

Protective mesh

Preventing large debris falling over the turbine

Fish-Friendly Vortex

The unique basin shape turns the incoming flow into a low-pressure vortex, allowing aquatic life to pass unharmed

Power Electronics

Highly reliable power electronics from EU manufacturers, carefully selected for long lifespan and uninterrupted operation.

Remote Control

A leading-edge IEC-61131-3 controller takes care of safe, efficient and autonomous operation of the turbine. Secure remote control is included for predictive maintenance, upgrades & PPA implementations.

Why is Turbulent better?

FISH FRIENDLY

A low RPM impeller with a design that creates low shear stress. The slow rate of pressure difference over the blade ensures that this turbine lets all fish and aquatic life pass by unharmed.

NO FLOOD RISK

As they work together with nature, our turbines do not obstruct the normal water flow, eliminating flood risks altogether.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Superb quality components made in EU, a trash rack for protection from large debris, and only one moving component allows this turbine to produce energy with hardly any maintenance cost.

EASY TO INSTALL

The vortex turbine is the smallest in its kind for each given energy level. It is preassembled and easily transported to your site.

LONG OPERATING LIFE

Provided our maintenance plan is followed, our turbines have a lifetime of 30 years.

REMOTE MONITORING

The turbine is fitted with monitoring software, enabling control from anywhere anytime.

 

Generate 8 times more energy than solar.

Hydropower is always there: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Every hour is a peak hour for hydro energy, while solar power is not available at night.

Comparing a Turbulent hydroelectric plant with a solar panel array of equivalent capacity, you will generate 8 times more energy using only 6% of the space.

Our technology was designed with the collaboration of several Universities and recognized by MIT for its promising innovations.
