The Product

The KCT is the world’s first patented, in the river or in the reservoir, vortex turbine, operated using the spin as distinct from the fall of water. The KCT harnesses the energy in a vortex, it draws from the Coriolis Force and thus promises to supplement the energy created by conventional gravity fed generators.

The KCT uses the flow not the fall of water, and can operate with a very low head, well under the 3 metre minimum required by conventional turbines to operate efficiently. Furthermore it does not interfere with the flow rate, which enables the system to be used sequentially in a waterway.

The KCT has been reviewed and endorsed by Dr. Harry Schaap, Federal Advisor for Renewable Energy. In turn Austrade has endorsed The KCT and included it on its Clean Energy Export Directory.

The KCT is designed to increase output without cutting down any more trees or damming any more rivers – by simply employing the water more efficiently; see accompanying ‘KCT Product Brochure’ diagrams below.
