ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA-We are thrilled to announce the move to our new engineering & production facility in St. Paul, MN as part of a multi-year program with the USARMY Corps of Engineers to build and deploy two different sizes of our modular waterpower technology "Volturnus" into an advanced microgrid program.
It was quite an experience remodeling and starting to set up our new location, and we're very grateful to Ryan Bartley at Link for getting us into this great facility and to Rep. Betty McCollum and her Staff for their support of our important program to reimagine how to harness the power of flowing water on our planet.
The first Expedition or "backpack" scale units will start field testing in the fall with a 21-foot long Microgrid scale, Volturnus being deployed early next year- it's going to be an exciting 12 months!
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 St. Paul, MN Verterra is funded by mission driven investors and is currently collaborating with the USACE on a strategic microgrid project in the US.
