Water2Energy is developing, testing and delivering Vertical Axis Water Turbines (VAWT). These
turbines has the benefit that the electronics can be placed above the waterline and therefore
can be more cost effective. The VAWT’s fit perfectly in existing channels and ducts which
have mostly a rectangular cross section.Through several selection procedures, the turbine
of Water2Energy was selected as the best to fit in existing channels like the drainage channel
alongside the lock of Kallo in the Port of Antwerp. Water2Energy developed and tested,
together with DeMeyer Construction, a 200kW water turbine. This test showed the great
potential of the VAWT’s.
