The Monroe Hydro Project is a first-of-its-kind hydropower design making use of an existing irrigation canal and Natel’s fish-safe turbine technology to generate a projected 1,070 MW of reliable, renewable energy annually to serve Central Oregon communities via the local grid. Multiple scientific tests conducted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) demonstrated 100% safe fish passage at Monroe Hydro thanks to the implementation of Natel's Restoration Hydro Turbine (RHT), confirming the RHT’s ability to restore biodiversity while generating carbon-free energy.
Natel's Red River project will add power generation to existing non-powered dams on the J. Walter Bennett Waterway in Louisiana.
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. The RHT’s compact size was critical for this project, as the opening for installation was restricted to .8 m (2.5 ft).
