What's New?

Summer has been filled with progress on both the product and business development fronts. We are preparing for the commercial release of our Beta turbine, which will be wet-tested at full scale at an independent lab in the coming weeks. On the sales side, Emrgy is keeping up with the consistently growing interest in our distributed hydropower solution by bringing on board a seasoned Director of Business Development to manage both domestic and international client relations. He brings significant expertise from a fruitful career in the agriculture industry.

Commercial Release of Next-Gen Turbine

Our engineering team has been hard at work this quarter, advancing our Beta product for scale. We have simplified the system design, and defined optimal materials and methods of fabrication, for streamlined, cost-effective manufacturing
and assembly. The result? A stronger, lighter, more efficient turbine. In addition, these performance enhancements increase the system's power density over an even wider range of flows and environments.

From Design to Commercial Deployment

To ensure optimal operation for new customers, we have built and assembled a new Emrgy turbine in our manufacturing plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The manufacturing and assembly procedures have proven to meet the timelines projected by the product development team — reducing the number of man-hours for each turbine build.

The next steps? Testing of the performance and hydraulic impacts will occur in partnership with Alden Research Laboratory — a world-renowned leader in fluid dynamics and water turbine performance testing. The tests will span a broad spectrum of operating conditions to ensure system performance across the unit’s entire operational envelope for a given customers’ site conditions.
