5kW In-stream Vertical Axis Turbine
ABS Part No.: ENC-005-F4

The EnCurrent in-stream hydro turbines are a revolutionary addition to the small-scale hydro power market. Their vertical-axis design prevents many of the installation hassles associated with other micro-hydro turbine designs. There is no need to build a diversion for a water inlet, or to install a dam or weir in the waterway, and no need to puzzle through the system design process to install the turbine.

Every EnCurrent turbine is sold as a complete "water to wire" package, including appropriate inverters for your system type. Grid-tie packages include a PowerOne grid tie inverter and wind interface*. Off-Grid remote packages include a PowerOne MultiMode interface inverter. (You can choose the intertie or off-grid package below.)

Cost Effective
  • Economic payback in as little as two years
  • Low capital investment
  • Minimal on-site engineering or construction required
  • No fuel costs or associated handling, storage or transportation
  • Low maintenance costs - easily performed by local technicians
Environmentally Friendly
  • EnCurrent is a ?run-of-river? technology so water is allowed to flow naturally
  • Units are ?fish-friendly? allowing fish to pass through the system unharmed
  • Emission free technology
  • Limited footprint with no dams, flooding, or stream alteration
Permanent Magnet Generator
  • High efficiency permanent magnet generator
  • Easy interconection for standalone, micro-grid and utility grid installations
  • Easily operated in parallel for larger installations

*Wind and hydro turbines have the same basic requirements for charge control, so many wind and hydro accessories are interchangeable.
