The Venturo is not available commercially yet. WPT is looking for partners to make the first installations as development sites
Large Scale Water Pumping
without the use of any fuel or electric power
The Venturo does not use fuel, electricity, wind or solar. It just uses the natural kinetic power from a river or tidal flow and works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with very little maintenance.
The Venturo has a maximum delivery distance of up to 50km and operates at an efficiency of 85%.
Systems can be expected to have an operating life of 50+ years.
Venturo Scale and Output
There 2 main sizes of pump available:
500mm inlet diameter which pumps up to 6.5 million litres per day
1000mm inlet diameter which pumps up to 26 million litres per day
However systems are scaleable and units can be made both larger and smaller to suit particular projects.

The Value of Stored Water
Water delivered free by the Venturo Pump, in addition to generating power, the stored
water will create a revenue stream for the landowner as farmers use and pay for the stored
water instead of expensive mains water.
The water is pumped to new/existing storage during wet or flood periods and either sold to farmers or released in times of drought alleviating some environmental issues effecting wild fish stocks.
Features and Benefits of the Venturo Pump
Tough stainless steel or steel construction
Low impact on the environment
Tolerant to high volumes of particulates
Minimal maintenance required
Large scale savings on utility costs
INSTALLING A VENTURO SYSTEM
The Venturo Pump will only be part of your water system - planning and costing the system will vary depending on many factors including the size, topography and delivery needs of your particular site. We also highly recommend that the installation of your Venturo System is carried out by Water Powered Technologies who understand how to maximise the water delivery potential and system longevity with a sustainable and efficient water system.
For this reason we offer a FINANCIAL LEASING MODEL easing the burden of the commissioning cost and giving the customer reassurance of a quality product and install. The leasing cost going forward would provide a significant saving on the cost of runing and maintaining a comparable diesel pump system.

The Venturo Pump has been trialed and tested for the
Cornwall Hydro Generation Project
The next step...
