The Belgian company Turbulent has developed a smart, small-scale and decentralised, hydropower plant. In contrast to traditional plants an easy to install turnkey product has been created to deliver affordable, reliable and clean electricity to even the most remote parts of the world.
Using a low-pressure design, we have developed a new kind of turbine that will not harm the local ecosystem. Rivers are a force of nature.
We feel the need to use them for energy, but only in such a way that it also improves the living environment of the aquatic creatures.
These hydropower plants range from 5kW to 200kW.The energy produced can be directly connected to your appliances or machinery, and at the same time connected to the national distribution grid, so you can inject the unused power to it, maximizing the revenue through a net billing connection.
The turbine generates clean, reliable and affordable energy in the most simple way. With the hydroelectric turbine of Turbulent energy can be extracted from rivers with much lower elevation than is usual – of 1.5 to 3 meters and a flow that is larger than 1000 Liters per second.The start-up inspired itself on the way vortexes work in nature.
