Portable River Turbine

These turbines for rivers and canals allow for the introduction of a base load supply, providing a complete renewable energy solution for the best cost-benefit possible. This proprietary technology is standardized and easily scalable. Although qualifying as “green”, these products are positioned as the best alternative for decentralized electrification along rivers.

The Smart Hydro Power turbine was developed to produce a maximum amount of electrical power with the kinetic energy of flowing waters. Because it is powered by kinetic energy instead of potential energy, it is known as a so-called “zero-head” or “in-stream” turbine. As such, no dams and/or head differential are necessary for the operation of this device; the course of a river remains in its natural state and no high investments in infrastructure are required. Because the amount of kinetic energy (velocity) varies from river to river, a greater amount of energy is generated with a higher velocity of water flow.
