EQA-river. Eco-friendly boat mill

The first EQA-river boat mill has been designed and built. The EQA-river is sophisticated and works automatically. It can lift out of the water when the water is running too fast. The EQA-river is made of 80% ‘plastic soup’. The ‘mill’ can be made of max. 15 m width. When the river water is running 1,5 m/sec or more the EQA-river is a profitable investment. EQA-projects has more hydropower innovations. They are for sale now, and bought by Dutch Water Authorities. EQA-projects is a start-up and ready to scale up.
System complete and qualified.
Technology has been proven to work in its final form and under expected conditions. In almost all cases, this TRL represents the end of true system development. Examples include developmental test and evaluation (DT&E) of the system in its intended weapon system to determine if it meets design specifications.
The EQA-river has been built and tested by the Technical University of Delft. We will now start with further optimisation and higher energy output while testing in the river Waal (Rhine) in all conditions

How does it work?

Like mankind did for centuries: using water mills. What is the secret ? Make the water mill cheap and reliable. So, you have even a better business case than using turbines.
