NuTURBINE Kaplan Turbine

The NuTURBINE™

A MODULAR,LOW-HEAD HYDRO TURBINE

  • POWER

    A FAMILY OF TURBINES | The generator can be sized from 75kW to 250kW depending on site needs. Combine sizes to fit hydropower site requirements.

  • FLOW

    Low water flow conditions suggest the use of a single turbine can produce energy from as little as 15 cfs. Max flow is 85 cfs.

  • SIZE

    Mounting footprint: 88" x 95". Installation height: 84". Weight: 8400lbs. For more details, please contact us to request technical drawings.

  • HEAD

    The turbine is designed for a head range of 8-40 feet. The turbines head range make it an ideal solution for multiple application types.

NuTURBINE Kaplan Turbine

Our modernized kaplan turbine is a a modular, low-head hydroelectric turbine design for projects 75kW to 250kW depending on site needs that can also be combined & scaled to fit much larger site requirements (one sized turbine that can be used with multiple sized generators). The NuTURBINE is ideal for many applications, including: isolated communities, retrofits of existing hydro sites, irrigation districts, municipalities & wastewater in pipe applications, and non-powered dams.

The NuTURBINE based is on technological evolutions that significantly improve the performance of a long-accepted hydropower turbine paradigm. Those changes eliminate the need for a dam, offer a decentralized generation capability and the ability to harvest energy from existing hydropower intensive systems, and reduce environmental effects, all with a low setup and procurement cost. With a reduction in civil works efforts & costs, the NuTURBINE offers a low cost waterpower solution.

ACCESS TO RENEWABLES

The capital costs of small hydro development are often a deterrent to its expanded use. A standardized and modular system considerably reduces the project effort, the schedule and the capital required, making investing in sustainable, carbon free- energy development a more attractive venture.

PROVEN DESIGN

We started designing a modular and intelligent hydroturbine over a decade ago. In 2014, WE completed two projects: one 500 kW installation in Connecticut consisting of five 100 kW units and a 100 kW installation in Massachusetts. Both sites have been successfully running ever since.

A DISTRIBUTED FUTURE

The smaller size of the NuTURBINE meets the need of the decentralization trend in the hydropower industry. Our turbines are robust & reliable to handle any application. Scaled to meet any size - they can fit generators of 75, 100, 150, 175, 200, and 250 kilowatts, all in the same physical envelope.

The NuTURBINE has been designed with an increased focus on longevity and ease of maintenance

The ongoing maintenance efforts are minimal, while the access and ease of operation provide an easy-to-manage usage life
  • SKID MOUNTED - simple point-to-point connection guide for ease of installation
  • PLUG & PLAY - all equipment, including the generator, is mounted to the same turbine platform and can be dropped in place
  • LUBRICATION SYSTEM - water quality sensitive and uses Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants
