You've got questions? We've got answers here-


Verterra V-Pod System

  • 50 kW to MW arrays
  • 24/7 zero emission, distributed power generation
  • Rugged reliability, purpose designed, self clearing
  • Completely submerged and out of sight
  • Fish friendly and environmentally sound
  • Ultra low maintenance, long life
  • Low profile enables deployment in shallow waters
"Volturnus" is a Modular Hydro Device (MHP) that deploys directly into rivers, oceans and man-made canals; in depths of less than 2 meters. It uniquely harnesses the power in flowing water to generate base-load electricity at 3-7 cents/kWh.  
At commercial scale, 5 units will make a 50 kW "V-Pod" and these can be deployed in arrays to reach MW capacity. 
Our mission is to help power the 1.2 billion people on our planet without electricity.


Volturnus is environmentally sound and adaptable.  It is safe for aquatic life and can be used in heavily- populated urban environments, developing regions, or in remote areas with no existing infrastructure; providing a global reach.


It requires no damming or river diversion, and with its low profile, can quickly be deployed in shallow water close to the shore- where the power is needed.


Rugged. Reliable. Intelligent Power.
