Turbulent Vortex Turbine
A 3-100kW micro hydro system that can operate efficiently with a low height difference.
Turbulent’s hydropower system is inspired and powered by the natural phenomenon of a water vortex. The system integrates an intake, turbine, generation device and tailrace. Each vortex turbine delivers 3-100kW, and can operate efficiently with a low height difference. Turbulent generates electricity with a single turbine or multiple turbines, allowing the device to generate as much electricity as if it was on a dam. Turbulent is based in Antwerp, Belgium with additional operations in Santiago, Chile.
Turbulent has a pilot study in Belgium and site research operations in Chile with long term targets across the globe.
