Capta Hydro, based and founded in Santiago of Chile, is a company that designs, develops and markets innovative hydropower technologies for renewable energy generation in artificial canals without the need of falls.

Currently Capta Hydro is testing "Capta SC", a system specifically focused on fast moving canals that is significantly more efficient than near competitors. This product will be available by late 2017. Next, the company will develop "Capta RD", a system specifically focused on slow moving canals that uses the innovative concept of "Dynamic Damming", which allows it to generate 5 or more times energy than a traditional hydrokinetic turbine. This product will be available by late 2018.

Our goal is to deploy our technology in artificial canals all around the world and are open to possible partnerships and opportunities to do so.
