A new way of harnessing the power from flowing water in rivers and streams has been created by Idénergie, who have been developing their new submerged river turbine over the last couple of years.
The portable river turbine can easily be transported as a flat packed kit and then constructed on the riverbank. Watch the video below for a quick overview of the installation and demonstration of how it can harness a rivers flowing water to produce up to 12 kWh power on a daily basis.
The river offers the best energy potential compared to other renewable sources of energy. Providing constant energy 24 hours a day, Idénergie’s river turbine can meet the electric needs of a residence by producing, at maximum capacity up to 12 kWh daily.
The reliability of the turbine offers a good alternative to gas generator. Motor noise, smell of gasoline, round trips to gas stations, fuel expenditures will be problems of the past.
The river turbine installation requires only 3 persons with little to no experience at all. No need of cranes, riverbed modifications or any costly civil works. Inspired by IKEA, the equipment is shipped anywhere in the world, dismantled in a box and can be assembled on the river bank by simply using allan keys. An embedded variable speed drive located inside the generator housing allows the optimal conversion of electricity, control of the optimal rotational speed, auto start-up of the turbine, continuous power optimization, remote monitoring capabilities, emergency brake and more.
