Gaining renewable energy with a screw turbine
The screw generator combines high efficiency with extreme reliability, fish friendliness and smooth running. This makes the screw generator a durable solution for the future. The screw turbine works in opposite direction of the Archimedian screw pump. The screw pump pumps the water up, the turbine screw rotates due to the flow of the water and energy will be transferred to the driver unit. The generated energy will be transformed by a generator into electricity.
