AquaGen Minnow and Trout Key Features and Functions.png



POWER DENSITY: AquaGen's turbines power density is best in class, providing 4 – 10 x more  power output per kg than the competition. 


AquaGen achieves the BEST POWER DENSITY in the industry by  incorporating these eleven techniques: 1).  Material Selection  2).  Advanced Alloys 3).  Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics: 4) Structural Optimization 5). Additive Manufacturing 6). Hollow Structures: 7).  Improved Manufacturing Techniques 8).  Corrosion Resistance: 9).  Active Monitoring and Maintenance 10).  Research and Development 11).  Scale Effects. Remember that achieving a balance between lightness and strength involves trade-offs. It's essential  we consider factors like cost, manufacturing feasibility, and environmental impact when implementing our strategies. AquaGen collaborates with experts in materials science, mechanical engineering, and hydrodynamics help AquaGen develop the most effective water turbine solutions.  Please see Q&A for more information.

VERSATILE: Designed to operate at an average water speed of 2 m/s, starts at 0.5 m/s and operating up to 3.4 m/s, delivering power under $0.03 kWh


TRANSPORTABLE: Lightweight: carried and deployed by 1 or 2 people


SIMPLE: Electricity is delivered to shore at 120VDC for direct connection to charger electronics (ex. phone chargers, computer chargers, communication power supplies)

RELIABLE: Patent pending generator with integrated voltage conditioner provides dependable underwater electricity generation

CURRENT STATUS:  Minnow and Trout are under test at Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Testing Center (CHTTC)
