The technology

A breakthrough innovation

The only turbine that produces electricity from flow speeds as low as 2l/s

Save Innovations proposes autonomous (low or very low voltage) electricity production solutions that use the very low speeds of hydraulic or aeraulic fluids.
These solutions enable production of just the electricity required for consumption valuing available energies that are not currently used. Moreover, they offer sustainable benefits. Save Innovations has designed a perfectly integrated assembly comprising:

• A drive system (propeller or turbine) to collect the energy from the fluid.

• A new kind of generator: the innovative aspect is this generator which transforms this energy into electricity.

• A regulator to optimise the low currents and deliver the required voltage.

• An integrated bypass to avoid the need for network derivation and to ensure network safety in the event of sudden high flow speeds.


Product available based on the technology

PICOGEN® pico-turbine

The PICOGEN® innovation offers access to a renewable energy on the spot, by valuing the hydraulic flows unused potential, in a move towards a more responsible energy mix and reasoned consumption.

The PICOGEN® technology, with its multiple patents, opens up new possibilities by using energy from low speed flows.

The easy installation and limited maintenance requirements of the PICOGEN® solution result from its stream-lined design, devised to make life easier for users.

Case Study

Water networks: Sectorisation

Sectorisation is an efficient means of controlling water leaks. It is essential to have real-time information at key points of the networks.
