Micro Hydro Turbine - Small water turbines to produce energy in drinking water or irrigation networks

Based on pumps used as turbines (PATs), this solution allows both public or private water companies to generate energy in their own installations including tanks, water treatment plants, pressure reducing valves and many more.

The turbines can reach up to 25kw and they can be installed at any point of the water network as long as there are a circulating flow and pressure available. The generated energy can be used for self-consumption in any nearby installation (pumping station, treatment plant, etc) or directly sold to a local or national grid. The crew behind this solution will help users to evaluate the energy potential, calculate the economic payback and give support during the installation process including, if necessary, a commissioning service on the field for first start-up of the system. This solution offers grid-tied and off-grid solutions based on battery charging turbines. Thanks to this technology, it is now possible to generate energy with a turbine instead of wasting it in heat and noise in a valve.
