About

Turbulent created a new way of generating energy from rivers. By utilizing the natural principle of a whirlpool, we are able to achieve high efficiency power conversion from small height differences with a low pressure turbine that doesn't harm aquatic creatures passing through. Truly, this robust turbine with only one moving component, will be able to generate energy for a local business, community or a small city (when installed in a grid of turbines) for years to come.
