US Installations Gallery

Nautilus Turbines have been installed all over the world to supply long lasting, efficient electricity generation to satisfied customers. From rural farms in Pennsylvania to remote island installations our technology is designed to do one thing very well; enable energy independence for a sustainable future. Below you'll find a selection of installations that showcase potential applications for a Nautilus turbine. If you have a Nautilus installed somewhere in the world and want to show it in action, please feel free to contact us and submit photos. We will be expanding this gallery as time goes on.

Western Colorado

This turbine was installed in 2006. The owner is an electrical designer/inventor with extensive experience in PV technology and satellite communications. This residential system includes a T-MH on 8 ft of head and produces 1500 watts. The site also includes a 2 kw PV array with a 400AH battery system.

Conestoga , Pennsylvania

This was the first test of T type runner in a trapezoidal scroll case, circa 1986. The test was performed in at a dam on the Conestoga Creek.

Blairstown, New Jersey

The T-MH installed here works in combination with a large PV system to provide power for a conference center. This turbine operates on 20ft of head and produces 6kw.

Kennet Square, PA

This is the first install for the T-MH turbine. The turbine was tested with francis and propellor runners. Several different generators and alternators were also tested. AERL in Australia modified one of their Maximum Power Point Trackers for hydro applications at our request. To the best of our Knowledge this was the first application of it’d kind. The tracker was a great success and allowed us to use unregulated Permanent Magnet generators with excellent turbine and generator efficiency. The T-MH installed in it’s present configuration with the “T” runner developed 1500 watts on 7 ft of head ! This site was totally destroyed by a flood and totally rebuilt. There are photos of that process in the gallery as well.
