A PORTABLE HYDROKINETIC TURBINE FOR PRODUCTION OF ENERGY FROM FLOWING RIVERS AND CANALS
This Short Video shows the installation of the turbine and the connection to users in an off-grid community.
You can find even more details and case studies on www.smart-hydro.de
We are looking for distributors.
The use of solar in off-grid communities has grown by leaps and bounds.
Battery storage is also increasing as the costs come down.
Even wind, biomass and geothermal are seeing growth in some areas.
We wish to add hydrokinetic turbines to this mix.
If your community is interested we would love to have you consider our solution.

Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Test Centre
The Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Test Centre (CHTTC), located on the Winnipeg River in Seven Sisters Falls, Manitoba is a national centre focused on the testing of hydrokinetic turbines.
Remote communities often generate electricity with expensive diesel fuel. The CHTTC and its personnel are equipped to consult, design energy solutions, create partnerships with hydrokinetic turbine developers and assist in the installation of microgrids.
“Marine renewable energy is largely an untapped resource, with the potential to provide new energy, economic, and environmental benefits for Canada. Harnessing the power of the tides, waves, offshore wind and rivers can provide a clean, sustainable electricity source, contribute to action on climate change, spur industrial growth by capitalizing on skills and assets already present in other sectors, and create a game-changing opportunity for remote communities – many of which continue to rely on imported diesel to generate electricity.”
