FERC

"New hydrokinetic technologies, if fully developed, have the potential to double the amount of hydropower production in the United States, bringing it from just below 10% to close to 20% of the national supply."

Efficiency

Volturnus uniquely harnesses the power in flowing water, with efficiency close to the theoretically maxim possible "Betz Limit"

Availability

Utilizing the 24/7 availability of flowing water in rivers, canals and oceans, combined with a self-clearing design, V-Pods provide baseload electricity

V-Pods produce emission free, eletricity 24/7 giving them a huge advantage over similar wind and solar devices that can't produce reliable base load power.

POWER DENSITY

Clustered mini arrays called "V-PODs" can be deployed in larger rivers and along the coasts from  50 kW to multi MWs

1/3 density per mile

4.4 MW Capacity

1/5 density per mile

2.65 MW Capacity

FAQs

When will V-Pods be available for purchase?


We are developing a customer pipeline currently fpr the next 5 years. Please email us at info@verterraenergy.com to formally inquire.




Can I get a Volturnus to help power my house?


Our current focus is on large scale arrays, but we plan to develop a residental scale Volturnus in the future similar to the size of the prototypes in videos and pictures on the website.




How big is Volturnus?


Voluturns is 6 meters long, 3 meters wide and 1 meter tall, about the size of a small speed boat. It can deploy in less than 2 meters of water depth.




How does Volturnus generate electricity?


Just like a wind turbine turns in the wind, Volturnus spins in flowing water. As it spins, it turns a generator which is connected to a submerged power line that runs to the shore.
