Who are we?

VH Quatrevingtreize is a Ciotadian company that has decided to act for ecological transition.

How? ‘Or’ What?

We have developed a wave-powered tidal turbine made from bio-based materials. Our turbine produces green energy that really makes a difference.
Made out of aforementioned bio-based materials, our manufacturing captures CO2 even before the start of electricity production.

What makes us different


How we offer our customers a product to produce and consume energy that respects future generations.

The entire end to end life cycle of our tidal turbines has been designed to have the least possible impact on the environment in mind, in particular by limiting carbon emissions during the production and recycling stage.


The components our tidal turbines are manufactured out of are based on a composite containing readily available

bio-based resin,

plant waste &

industrial waste

In addition to

preventing CO2 emissions  

and of

Reduce the pollution,

using these abundant components also allows us to

secure the supply chain and in-flow of materials.


Our tidal turbine operates

in harmony with aquatic life

due to the flexible, rounded and slow nature of the rotor. 


Life cycle

The composite material at the base of our tidal turbines is fully recyclable, which allows us to offer a product that is overall

99% recyclable.

Reliable and predictable energy


The hydrolic energy is captured at a precise and predefined point. Taking multiple measurements allows us to place the turbine at the location with the best reliability and predictability of energy production.

Continuous production

The tidal turbine can operate in any weather, and at any time of the day. Thus, electricity is produced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


The energy supplied by a watercourse can be measured and according to several criteria (quantity, force, periodicity, etc.).

    Smart Tidal Turbine

    Connected for better monitoring

    Our tidal turbines are connected to an IOT network in order to collect and send data on: 

    • Their production, which allows to see the savings made.
    • Their operation and condition, in order to perform predictive maintenance.
    • The watercourse, such as the pollution present in the water, variations in flow … which can make it possible to anticipate floods.
    A competitively priced solution

    Our turbines are rented out to our clients on the basis of 10 year contracts. After the contract ends, we will pick the turbine up and recycle it, using the parts to build new turbines. 

    We offer a stable kWh price throughout the duration of the contract at a lower price than the average of traditional suppliers. During the contract duration, our projections estimate that you will save 15-20% versus buying your electricity from the grid. 

    The lightness and simplicity of our mechanism also allows us to achieve prices below the average for the tidal turbine market .

    Each of our tidal turbines is designed to best adapt to its immediate environment.

    Our Clients


    In self-consumption, a solution to act in favor of the energy transition by consuming clean energy. Our turbine perfectly synergizes with other methods such as solar power, stabilizing the output during the entire day and reducing the need for unnecessarily large batteries.


    In hybrid consumption to reduce their bills and their carbon footprint.


    A solution to extend energy production to green electricity and offer it to your entire network.


    A CSR approach to reduce the energy bill while protecting the planet.
