Welcome to Verterra Energy, Inc.

The "Volturnus" from Verterra Energy, Inc. is intelligent power. It uniquely harrnesses the untapped energy of rivers to produce electricity effieciently and cost-effectively.


Volturnus is purpose designed for rugged reliablity in rivers.  It deflects debris in the water and prevents clogging and jamming;  assuring optimal, around-the-clock, reliable energy production. Its simple and rugged components are also designed to be ultra-low maintenance, for years of reliable performance.


The low-profile, purpose-built design allows Volturnus to sit below the river's surface, keeping it out of sight for silent, seamless operation.


Volturnus is also 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 exisiting 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.
