Have you ever noticed how water behaves when it flows around a bridge pillar? When faced with an obstacle, flowing water is condensed and accelerates resulting in higher power available to extract. Competing devices require a minimum flow speed of 2.5 mps, the GKinetic turbine self-starts in just 0.5 mps and hits rated capacity in 2 mps thanks to its patented ‘bluff body’. This 'body' acts as an ‘intentional obstacle’ to increase energy potential and is a cost-effective deployment system. The result is a groundbreaking product for remote and urban communities to access clean energy from untapped hydrokinetic resources.
