Lucid Energy receives NSF certification for in-conduit hydro turbines

LucidPipe Hydro Turbine

Renewable power developer Lucid Energy has received NSF certification for its in-conduit hydro turbine systems, the company announced.

The Portland-based company -- manufacturers of the LucidPipe Power System -- were awarded NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certification for its 24- and 42-inch turbines after testing by NSF International.

NSF International is a global, independent organization that evaluates and certifies projects in construction, food, water and consumer goods industries to minimize adverse health and environmental effects.

"NSF certification is important for us because it enables us to assure our customers that the LucidPipe Power System is ready for widespread deployment in municipal drinking water systems," said Lucid Energy President and CEO Gregg Semler.

Lucid Energy's LucidPipe units use existing large-diameter pipeline to generate the water flow required to turn their turbines, meaning they can be installed in municipal, agricultural and industrial systems.

The company already has a commercial installation in Riverside, Calif., in addition to partnerships with the San Antonio Water System, Portland, and Haifa, Israel.

HydroWorld.com reported earlier this month that Lucid Energy had also received funds from an Israeli crowd-funding group to expand its operations to international markets.

"We are extremely excited that we can now offer the systems on a global basis to water agencies seeking ways to reduce costs, lower carbon emissions and reduce reliance on grid-based power by using their existing water infrastructure to generate cost-effective renewable energy," Semler said.
