The Lubi River project is the first of 33 sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo that will use Natel's RHT design, as part of our partnership with Symbion Power and MyHydro. The Lubi River installation is near Mbuji-Mayi in the Kasai Province, where grid electricity is not available and the population exceeds more than 4 million people. According to the World Bank, less than 10% of Kasai Province residents have access to electricity. The project, scheduled to begin production in 2024, will feature four 1.9 meter (6 foot) diameter RHTs and generate approximately 4.5 MW of electricity.
Natel's Red River project will add power generation to existing non-powered dams on the J. Walter Bennett Waterway in Louisiana.
The Monroe Hydro Project makes use of an existing irrigation canal to generate 300 kW of reliable, renewable energy annually to serve Central Oregon communities via the local grid.
The historic Freedom Falls Mill is situated on the headwaters of Sandy Stream in central Maine. The project delivers 35 kW to the surrounding community and directly to the operation of The Mill’s Lost Kitchen restaurant.
