The NuTECH™ Controller
EXCLUSIVE PARTNER PROGRAM
MAXIMIZE EFFICIENCY AT YOUR HYDROPOWER SITE
We're remodeling the way hydropower is built and managed to enable more sustainable, low cost hydro. Modernized beyond CAM curves - our patented controller technology utilizes power feedback loops to increase the efficiency of any sized Kaplan turbine.
The NuTECH™ Controller ensures optimal hydro power system output continuously regardless of any potential variable (including water level changes, impurities, wear on the turbine, blockages, flow variability, and more) and is the brains behind our reliable and efficient NuSTREEM dual-regulated Kaplan turbine.
The innovative design concept of the NuTECH™ Controller makes CAM curves and index testing a thing of the past by optimizing for each operating point. This approach eliminates any inefficiencies that would have arisen when operating under conditions different from those the CAM curve was generated under.
The monetary benefits of this approach are twofold: it improves turbine efficiency over what is typically achievable via CAM curves and index testing and eliminates the expense of costly consultants.
We were excited to observe during testing at our Connecticut site that the use of the NuTECH controller resulted in efficiency increases of over 20% at lower flows.
Our mission is to enhance the efficiency of hydro's baseload. Learn more below.
Our NuTECH™ Controller puts intelligence behind decisions about how to move water through a turbine. More efficient hydropower can elevate the efficiency of our already installed baseload, make site costs more reasonable, and play a a huge role in our carbon free & clean energy future.
By enhancing asset efficiency, we offer two key solutions to the hydropower industry - increase the economic feasibility of new, sustainable, small hydropower development & improve the efficiency of existing hydropower projects, both large and small.
The NuTECH™ Controller is offered as an optimization upgrade to existing control systems & can be applied to current site infrastructure, providing for a better return on investment for site owners while also making hydropower a leader in our energy transition to a carbon-free grid.
