Founded in 2010, HydroSpin has developed a set of unique in-pipe generators that generate electricity from the flow of water inside distribution pipes. The HydroSpin generator creates enough power to support low-energy devices throughout the water network; such as sensors, probes and transmission devices (GPRS).
The need for the HydroSpin generator is derived from two major trends: improving the reliability of the water networks and improving the process of data harvesting from the network.
The HydroSpin generator addresses the above needs in two ways:
the deployment of sensors and measuring devices will no longer be limited to locations that have accessibility to electricity. Using HydroSpin, monitoring devices can now be positioned anywhere on the water network.
the data received from monitoring is no longer limited by the amount of energy available through batteries. Data can now be transmitted continuously, giving customers visibility of their network and sensors 24/7
HydroSpin can be deployed as part of an integrated solution or can generate the operating energy for various systems independently, with minimal maintenance and upkeep.
