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
