CENTERED IN INNOVATION WE BUILD A PORTFOLIO FOR OUR CUSTOMERS
Floating Photovoltaic Power Plants
Floating Photovoltaic is a great idea. Producing electricity from a water surface without diminishing its original function, adding a profitable and sustainable function to an existing infrastructure is undeniably an appealing plus.
Hydrelio® Floating Photovoltaic Plants created by Ciel et Terre transform this great idea in a real and effective technological solution. They consist on a set of floating devices, made from HDPE plastic (high density polyethylene), each device being equipped with a single photovoltaic panel. The design and dimensioning of each plant optimizes the energy production level whilst assuring also the best adjustment for the environmental and technical conditions of the location.
The Hydrelio® concept focused on achieving the better production/cost ratio, therefore preferring simple on over-performant, but pursuing excellence on that simplicity. The robustness of this concept led “Ciel et Terre” to a leading position on the global implantation of this technology.
Acting on markets where the natural conditions are very favorable to Floating Photovoltaic – high level of sun exposition and large hydrographic network (including irrigation ponds, water treatment plants, industrial lakes, and hydroelectric dams) – we immediately realized the advantages this innovative technology would bring to some of our customers. We strongly believe that for companies that inherently to their activity have access to water surface usage, this is the best option for an additional income or a strong reduction on energy costs.
There are distinctive features on Floating Photovoltaic from other renewable energy technologies:
- Doesn’t imply the “abduction” of soil for its usage
- The water surface maintains its original function
- Being afloat over water the surrounding temperature is necessarily lower which improves production on hot days
- The water surface underneath has evaporation reduced in 90%
Adding to this Floating PV is a “fast response” solution. It is possible to have real production less than a year after the decision to install it (hydroelectric, eolian or conventional PV, would have a larger time gap).
Whenever there is need for electricity, Sun and a compatible water surface, our Hydrelio® photovoltaic plants are a solution to be considered. Let us help you on that task!
The wind turbines that we have become familiar with – with horizontal axis – are absolutely non compatible with urban environment. Assuming installation within buildings OMNIFLOW wind turbines are the best possible choice.
The vertical axis construction makes wind coming from any direction useful, and grants extremely low noise or vibrations. Their special designed omnidirectional diffuser protects the wind turbine, diminishing the visual impact of movable parts, and preventing bird accidents. Furthermore, the Venturi effect generated by the diffuser enhances the air flow and therefore the electricity production.
Being Omniflow the best option for harvesting wind energy within urban locations, there is more to it. High efficiency solar panels can be placed on the diffuser giving an extra push on electricity production for your convenience. If you have space enough Sun energy can be harvested with conventional PV panels in coordination with the Omniflow system.
Omniflow innovative wind turbines make it an ideal partner for D2M-Energytransit urban projects. We are ready to make yours!
OMNILED is a bright idea! Associating the energy effiency of exterior LED lighting with a hybrid solar/wind generator would have been good enough. But due to the unique features of OMNIFLOW design much more was achieved. The omnidirectional diffusor construction allows to lodge storage capacity and other usefull equipment inside it, transforming each OMNILED luminaire into an autonoumous and efficient plataform for usefull technology:
-Wi-fi hot-spot – Location analytics (traffic/pedestrian weather metrics)
– EV Charging point – Smart Parking – Surveillance
All the technologies lodged inside OMNILED can be monitorized and controlled remotely via Omniflow’s web based Monitor and Control platform.
Typically installed on 8 m poles OMNILED can easily iluminate a 10 m radius surrounding. Motion sensors and system controller allow a safe and effective operation subjected to movement extending LED na batteries lifespan.
The focus of OMNILED design has been set on energy efficiency granting the highest availability of power for the IoT features lodged within.
Considered as a autonoumous lighting solution OMNILED bypasses the need of buried cabling and related civil works hence simplifiyng and lowering costs of outdoor illumination.
Since grid connection is optional, the equipment can be used as an uninterruptible power supply providing grid stability and backup power in case of grid downtime.

Waterbodies sustainable management
With the raising impact of climate change, which in Iberian Peninsula leads to drought larger and longer periods, a good management of water reserves is crucial.
Assurance of waterbodies functional performance whilst preserving the water ecossystems balance is increasingly a must, for safekeeping the precious resource for several agro-industrial sectors – Water!
AQUAGO can offer today – after 15 years of cumulative experience in all continents – an integrated set of products and services for waterbodies management.
- Hydrobiological evaluation sudies – Identification of nocive/infestant aquatic species.
- Action Plans for removal/control of harmful algae and plants.
- Eutrofization parameters monitoring.
- Beneficial use of water plants for waterbodies problems solving.
Constant inovation focused on problem solving has lead to SUNGO oxigenators development. Fully autonomous (automatic operation and solar powered) this equipment raises the dissolted oxigen level within the water column. A definite contribution for algae and unwanted aquatic plants proliferation.
Whatever the problem of your water reservoir D2M-Energytransit and Aquago can help finding its causes and a proper solution.
