StreamDiver®: the latest innovation in small hydropower.

Compact, reliable and efficient

The StreamDiver by Voith is a turbine generator unit in the field of small hydropower, constructed to be compact, simple and therefore low- maintenance. In addition to the technical and ecological benefits, this innovative product provides the opportunity to develop new and previously unusable hydropower locations. The StreamDiver's construction means it can be used in sites where it has previously been impossible economically or for environmental protection reasons. For example, existing weirs and dams can be used to generate electricity and the environmental impact of such an installation can be reduced to a minimum. The StreamDiver technology can thus make a sustainable contribution to the continuing expansion of climate-friendly energy production.

Innovation From Tradition

Voith has been the global leader in the hydropower industry for more than 140 years and has played a crucial role in driving research and development. Hydropower is the oldest form of renewable energy but it still has great potential for innovation.
