Come see the NuCONTAINER™ (our portable, flexible, turbine container design) in person at HydroVision 2021 in Spokane, WA this July at booth #2086

The NuCONTAINER design takes advantage of industry-standard ISO shipping containers, as well as our standard NuTURBINE, to provide a modular, easily-integrated system intended to minimize installation and hydropower site costs.

NuSTREEM’s modular NuCONTAINER system makes the conventional custom designed small hydro approach a thing of the past. A prefabricated standard shipping container powerhouse system is used in place of a classic powerhouse, a solution that substantially reduces foundational requirements, the extent of the civil design and the resultant onsite construction.

One to three NuTURBINE’s (a modernized Kaplan style design) are placed in a modified shipping container with the required grid interconnection equipment.  The modular system is built and tested at the factory and transported by truck to the site for installation. The reduced construction schedule and costs are significant using the modularity of the turbine and the container, making site development economically feasible.

Using this approach, new small hydro and low head sites can be developed as economically attractive options for generating clean energy.  The NuCONTAINER is a proven structure that is inexpensive, easily transportable, and utilizes readily available turbine generator technology.

Almost anywhere small hydro is desired, both independent micro grid or as part of a larger grid applied system, a modular system could be installed: irrigation districts, mining facilities, rivers and canals, existing mills, conduits and factory sites.  Anywhere there is moving water with a change in elevation, there is a possibility to use a modular hydropower solution.

A PORTABLE, FLEXIBLE TURBINE CONTAINER DESIGN

  • Single-turbine configuration NuCONTAINER weighs approximately 20,000 pounds
  • Triple-turbine configuration NuCONTAINER weighs approximately 40,000 pounds
  • Smallest configuration - Smallest NuTURBINE in a single NuCONTAINER would produce approximately 75 kilowatts
  • Largest configuration -  Largest NuTURBINE in a single NuCONTAINER would produce approximately 750 kilowatts
  • Estimated annual energy production rage: 350 - 3,500 megawatt-hours

NuCONTAINER Triple Turbine Configuration

A modular and standardized approach to hydroelectric generation.

A scaleable run of river solution - combine the size & number of turbines in a container and the size & number of containers at the site to meet site generation requirements.

With the NuCONTAINER system, hydro sites can rapidly be put into operation, as it applies a unique foundation approach which allows owners to bypass many of the costly and time-consuming geotechnical and civil efforts that traditional hydro sites require.

  • Wide variety of hydropower site applications | Irrigation districts | Mining facilities | Rivers and canals | Existing mills | Conduits and factory sites

  • Remote management of asset via NuTECH™ Controller

  • Hydropower In A Box | A modular, standard, container system

  • Transported on truck | Lifted by forklift or crane | Easy relocation of asset

  • Can be lifted by air and placed in remote locations

  • Reduce foundational requirements | Installed on a simple cement base

  • Scalable run-of-river solution using readily available turbine technology - the NuTURBINE

  • Line replaceable unit | Standardization & logistical support that minimizes the need for field disassembly, reassembly, and test by specialists

  • Reducing upfront capital costs to site development | Making hydropower economically feasible
