Currently, products are marketed under two clearly differentiated ranges;


  • On the one hand, there is the Microgrid Range, which are hydro turbines designed to self-consume or sell the energy generated, with the particularity that they always work connected to the existing electrical network.
  • On the other hand, there is the Microbat Range, which are hydro turbines designed to charge batteries, therefore working in isolation from the existing electrical network and with the possibility of generating a totally independent electrical network.


All equipment comes with a two-year warranty. In addition, behind Powerturbines there is a highly qualified technical team to support any anomaly that may occur in the correct operation of the small hydroelectric power plant.


Depending on the country where the installation is carried out, Powerturbines adapts its equipment to comply with current regulations. For example, if the installation is located in France, the hydraulic turbine is supplied with the ACS certificate (Attestation de Conformitè Sanitaire) while if it is located in the United Kingdom, it is supplied with the WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) certificate.
