Volturnus V-Pod System:
Above is direct comparison with other run of the river devices. Cumulatively, Verterra’s design is superior because of its low profile, rugged design that resists clogging and jamming better than other technologies.
Low profile: defined by a device with diameter that is larger than the minimum depth needed to deploy. This greatly expands the locations a device can be deployed.
Open System: No funnels or tube frame structure surrounding the turbine component. An enclosed turbine is much more susceptible to clogging and jamming.
Fin Crossing: Where a blade of the turbine crosses a strut or other stationary structure perpendicular to the direction of water flow. These areas are highly susceptible to clogging and jamming.
