Rotor – mobile hydropower station
test run of a prototype in the river Loisach close to Beuerberg, Bavaria

A water wheel with a vertical axis is placed in the center of an inner tube. The water stream of a river makes the turbine rotate and electricity can be generated with a dynamo which supplies a bulb. In this way the “rotor” visualizes the flow energy at day and night. At the same time the object animates to think about new developments of innovative renewable energy systems.Steel, sheet, rubber tube, diameter approx. 1.35 m, height: approx. 1.0 m.
