We provide a sustainable focus to the renewables energy market, respectful with the environment, safe for fish and ecosystems, based on hydraulic micro-generation
Our goal is the production of renewable, clean and micro-scaled energy, without losing sight of building them in a respectful way for our ecosystem.
In the renewable energy market, a continuous search must be made of new ways of producing renewable energy, and at the same time, protecting the environment. No matter what the technology and the renewable source from which it comes, it will always be difficult to find the equation that allows for balance.
We have no doubt that micro-scale hydroelectric power is the most productive way depending on capacity factors, beating other more “traditional” technologies such as solar or wind. However, all of them complement each other, forming systems that allow us to build a more sustainable future for the next generations, returning to the planet part of all the wealth it gives us.
The water resource is still abundant, but it has to be treated with rigorous care, this factor being the cornerstone of development. Our engineering and technology facilitate that the flow dynamics do not change or the available water is wasted. The upstream or downstream flows remain intact.
We create clean energies
The characteristics of the generators developed by Sinfin Energy allow us to look for that balance between renewable energies and respect for ichthyic populations. Our Turbine based on the Archimedes Screw rotates at slow speeds, at a rate of about 30 laps per minute. When the fish enter through the top of the machine, they simply lower the screw in large tubs and swim in its lower part, without being altered or damaged at all. The turbulences at the exit of the system are minimal because the water does not accelerate or drift in these channels.
Scales and fish steps, Fish-Friendly construction
Developing our systems thinking about the fluvial fauna is, in addition to the philosophy on which we base our engineering, the best way to save costs from the beginning of the project. Our goal is to build sustainable steps and scales for fish in all our systems, while developing thinking of a quick return on investment.
There are many studies in this regard, all our systems and technologies are tested, thus ensuring a responsible method of generating profitable and totally clean micro-energies.
