5 Volturnus= 50 kW V-POD system
"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."
Continental scale Volturnus deployed along a coastal city
3 Meter Width
6 Meter Length
Microgrid scale Volturnus in an urban infrastructure
Microgrid scale V-Pod deployed in a canal
Volturnus uniquely harnesses the power in flowing water, with efficiency close to the theoretically maxim possible "Betz Limit"
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.
V-PODs clustered mini arrays
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
When will V-Pods be available for purchase?
We are developing a customer pipeline currently fpr the next 5 years.
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?
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.
