Tecnoturbines took part in the Technical Conference organised by FECOREVA .

The conference organised by FECOREVA (the Association of Irrigators in the Valencian Community), took place at the headquarters of the Central Syndicate of Water from the Río River in Almassora (Castellón). The conference covered several topics of interest to irrigators in relation to innovations to irrigation systems that are increasingly focused on energy efficiency.

The conference began with a lecture on ‘High-power photovoltaic pumps for productive irrigation’, given by Professor Luis Navarte from the Solar Energy Institute of the Technical University of Madrid. Next, Jaime Lledó, CEO of Tecnoturbines, gave a talk on ‘Energy recovery through water turbines’. Jaime Recio Sánchez, Aqualogy’s Smart Metering Product Manager, presented the ‘iMeter’ method as a “simple and cost-efficient solution to manage water consumption“. Likewise, the Energy Supply Manager at Aqualogy, Alberto Sánchez Hervás, gave a talk on ‘Generating Hydraulic and Photovoltaic Energy through Irrigation‘.

Finally, Asefilco Insurance Brokers and Santander Bank explained the details of the products and benefits related to the collaboration agreements signed with FECOREVA, and what they mean for irrigators.
