Unleashing Water's Potential
Small Hydro
Small Hydro Solutions

The world needs power. Coanda Power is a proven renewable energy solution. Elgin Water Solutions makes small hydro development simple through Coanda Power Systems.

The world needs power. Coanda Power is a proven renewable energy solution. The use of the Coanda Power Screen allows fish to safely swim over the intake. The Coanda Power Screen allows the river to behave naturally. Thus, no habitat is destroyed. Because the systems are modular and easy to install, even construction is low impact.
Coanda Power provides a robust source of power. While utilizing a small physical footprint and low capital and construction costs, Coanda Power installations can provide consistent and high energy output. Because Coanda Power systems have few moving parts and use water as fuel, the operating cost is very low. The payback for a Coanda Power plant is nominally five years.
The technical challenges associated with this green and robust solution have been met. We have provided several systems around the world — where the problems of building and scaling green technology in harsh environments have been identified and solved. We have provided Coanda systems, including those like the Coanda Power Screen at the left, for projects across the globe.
