Turbulent Solution

Affordable micro-hydropower plants

TURBULENT develops reliable micro-hydro power plants to deliver clean energy to even the most remote communities. By mimicking nature, our plants do not harm local ecosystem.With each vortex turbine delivering 3-100kW, Turbulent hydroelectric plants operate at a high efficiency on water streams with a low height difference.

We generate electricity in the form of a single turbine or a network of multiple turbines. This approach allows us to generate up to the same amount of energy as a large dam does, but without the dam.

Want to know what problems of renewable energy production we are solving?
Our power plants can be installed in a river/canal or a grid based system.
And Turbulent aims not only to sell turbines/plants, but also to collaborate with energy providers, energy distributors and installation companies to bring the technology to consumers as simple as possible.

Besides, if you care about the future of hydro-power, renewable energy, bio-mimicry, sustainable society, rural electrification… you are also in the right place!

Product Features

Fish friendly

A low impeller RPM, low shear forces and low change of pressure make sure the fish that enter the turbine get out unharmed.

No flood risk

Our plants do not obstruct the flow of the river, but work together with nature, so no risk of flood or migration of locals.

Turn-key and mobile

Smallest in its kind for each given energy production, our turbine is pre-fabricated, cost-effective and easily transportable.

Long operating life

Rugged materials and a sturdy design make sure the turbine can easily reach 20 years of continuous power production.

Low maintenance

Good quality components and a self-cleaning trash rack result in a very low required maintenance.

Remote monitoring

The vortex is outfitted with a remote monitoring software enabling control from anywhere at any time.

  • "What Turbulent does is exactly what I want to achieve with the Flemish innovation policy. They tackle a social issue like renewable energy from an international vision and work with a self-developed innovative product within a scalable business model. Flanders has a good tradition and reputation when it comes to tackling social challenges via knowledge and resourcefulness. Turbulent’s hydro powerplant is a wonderful new addition to our list of outstanding cases. I am very proud that we have been able to support this."
