Hydro

Pico/Micro Hydro

Our pico/micro hydro machines are designed to make use of a natural source of running water. Water from the stream is channelled into a pipeline to gain enough head (vertical drop the water falls) to power the system. The water passes through a nozzle, where it accelerates, strikes the turbine wheel and turns the generator shaft. The amount of power produced will depend on the head and flow from the water source. We mostly use 3 different turbines e.g. Pelton, Crossflow and Pump as Turbine (PaT) as per the site specifics.
