LocPower® is a brand new energy harvesting patented solution; it consists of a new concept of control valve able to harvest energy otherwise dissipated during its normal use in waterworks, flow and pressure control.

The LocPower® system converts energy dissipation into mechanical power and then into electric energy. Zero emission energy harvesting, zero CO2 production.

Make your utility smarter and more sustainable

Internal bypass channel means that no construction work is needed prior to installation at the site. LocPower® is easy to install and operate.

LocPower® solution offers a more conservative possibility to exchange energy with the electric grid or better LOCLAIN® can offer innovative storage solutions.

LocPower® waterworks design allows customers to control pipeline pressure offering energy harvesting features without giving up to safety criteria, regulation and control as an integrated system in the actual context.

LocPower® turns dissipation into energy savings

Install first-of-its-kind energy harvesting control valve and turn your pipeline into a renewable energy source.
