SIT INSTREAM TURBINE
The SCHOTTEL Instream Turbine is a real lightweight and yet a robust generator of hydrokinetic energy. It is based on the fact that reducing turbine size leads to a better ratio of power and material use.
Depending on the current velocity, one SIT produces between 54 and 70 kW rated, grid-ready electric power based on rotor diameters between three and five meters. Thanks to its modular approach, a higher overall power can be reached with a larger number of turbines.
SIT can be implemented in rivers, sea straits and tidal races offshore in jetty, floating or submerged platforms in varying quantities. SIT is a flexible component which can be used with different platform types as on-going projects show.
