Our Hydroscrew is based on the millenary hydraulic ingenuity of the Archimedes Screw and when applying reverse engineering, we have transformed it into a micro hydraulic generation turbine.
It has many advantages as opposed to other conventional technologies:
- Modularity and high capacity to adapt to existing infrastructure
- to the existent structures.
- Light weight and size of its elements compared to other technologies.
- No loading chamber or forced piping required.
- It operates at a relatively low rotational speed, which causes little wear to the mechanical components and guarantees their service life.
- Low maintenance costs.

CUSTOM DESIGNED PROJECTS
Our Hydroscrew is based on the millenary hydraulic Archimedes Screw.
We have applied reverse engineering to this mechanism which was used to pump water from the river bed to higher areas by transforming it into a micro hydraulic generation turbine.
Through the relief and fall of the water, the Hydroscrew is able to generate completely clean and constant energy, supplying power ranging from 1kW to 100kW per turbine, depending on the existing natural conditions for the development and sizing of the machine.
GENERATION CAPABILITY (kW) FOR EACH TURBINE
Clean, Constant and Efficient Energy
The Hydroscrew is one of the most efficient existing micro-hydraulic generation technologies on the market, reaching nominal results higher than 90% with a minimun water flow.
This is due to its lineal shape, resulting in a compact design, completely adaptable to riverbeds or derivations, and permitting an optimized performance on a wide range of water flows even with low water jumps.
The ideal setup for this device is in the jumps of less than 5 meters high, allowing it to cover a spectrum of generation where other hydraulic developments are not efficient.
Our HYDROSCREW is capable of generating between 1 and 100kW per unit, and the turbine can be designed for each specific application need. To achieve more power, we add turbines in series or parallel being able to reach any power needed.

Experts in renewable energies
Sinfin Energy is an engineering company specialized in renewable energies, with focus and a long track record in micro-hydraulic systems. Our company is based on the alliance of four companies that cover all the phases necessary for a project of energy use. Each of the base companies brings all their know-how in their areas of activity to promote a project that was created with the objective of providing energy solutions based on hydraulic use.
We differentiate ourselves by facilitating all the processes involved in the project, not being dependent on external agents or suppliers. We have experience in the analysis of viability, design and development of engineering, equipment manufacturing, civil works execution, and start-up, being able to offer turnkey projects adapted to each specific case.
