Verterra is on a mission to harness the power of flowing water in rivers, oceans and canals to produce abundant clean, reliable power for all the world’s people.
Volturnus is a vertical axis turbine that uniquely harnesses the power of flowing water by combining the working principles of centrifugal pumps & hydrofoils with a rugged, hydrodynamic design. Similar to an underwater 3D weather vane, VOLTURNUS works in harmony with the current to dynamically adjust once deployed. When installed in modular arrays or V-PODS, the technology creates scalable, low cost power from 50 kW to multi-MW arrays.
Based in Minneapolis, MN Verterra is funded by mission driven investors and is currently collaborating with the USACE on a strategic microgrid project in the US.
