Reverse engineering based on the milennial Archimedes Screw, our Hidroscrew is a micro-generation turbine.
Counts on numerous advantages against other conventional technologies
- Modularity and high adaptation capabilites to the existent structures.
- Light weight and size of its elements compared to other technologies.
- It does not require load chamber or forced piping.
- Works on a low speed rotation, which originates low wear of the mechanical components and guarantees its life cycle.
- 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 is used to pump water from the river bed to higher areas by transforming it into a hydraulic microgeneration turbine.
Through the water flow and the height available, the Hydroscrew is able to generate completely clean and constant energy, supplying power that oscilates between the 50 kW and 200 kW, depending on the existing natural conditions for the development and sizing of the machine.
GENERATION CAPABILITY (kW) FOR EACH TURBINE
Efficient & Constant
The Hydroscrew is one of the most efficient existing micro-hydraulic generation technologies on the market, reaching nominal results higher than 70% 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 set-up for this development is on the jumps lower than 5 meters, allowing it to cover a generating range where other hydraulic technologies are not efficient at all.
Our Hydroscrew is able to generate between 1 & 100kW for each unit. Being able to design the turbine that better fits in each application. To rise the generation capacity, we add turbines in series or in parallel.

Experts in renewable energies
Sinfin Energy is an engineering specialized in renewable energies, with focus and long trajectory in micro-hydraulic systems. Our company is based on the union 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 born with the aim of offering 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 feasibility analysis, design and development of engineering, equipment manufacturing, civil works execution, and start-up, being able to offer turnkey projects adapted to each specific case.
