 PROPOSAL 

Title MYCRO-HYDRIC TURBINE
Project id.119
Reference sectorRENEWABLE ENERGY
IP Protection LevelPatented
Description of the innovation project The patented innovation refers to a flow conveyor. It allows to increase the amount of kw/h produced in a year and the 50/90%performance of the turbines related to the flowing speed of canals, water pipelines and sea currents.
State of dev.Prototype
Industrial applicationProduction of renewable energy by: water pipes; water canals; civil and industrial purifiers
Market segmentThe company will try to test the turbine among various applications that primarily are pressure water pipes and open-air canals. The regularity and the velocity of the pipes and canals water flow allow to reach high level of output of the turbine. The MDN machine is a landmark for renewable energy marketplace that has an international perspective.
Advantage factorThe patented innovation refers to a flow conveyor. It allows to increase the amount of kw/h produced in a year and the 50/90% performance of the turbines related to the flowing speed of canals, water pipelines and sea currents. This micro-hydro turbine will be planned, realized and set up according to the canals’ specific features in which it will be installed in order to optimize the productive capacity.
Commercial challenge - increased productivity by 50 % to 90 % of parity conditions; - Low installation and low maintenance costs (electric parts placed outside water);
Publications and Customer ReferecesThe micro-hydric turbine arises from a project-work started 4 years ago and developed with the collaboration of young graduate coming from Milan, Turin, Palermo and Genoa engineering schools. The related research activity was particularly intense characterized by fluid-dynamics simulations to show the efficiency of the turbine operation.
