Francis type Pump as Turbines
Head: 1.7-40 m
Head: 8-120 m
Pipe size: 80-400 mm
Output: 3 kW up to 100 kW
Pump-as-turbines are simple, robust and cost effective. They can be installed in any water delivery network with excess pressure and are well suited for sites which have a relatively consistent flow rate. Pump turbine packages are available for both on and off-grid applications. Power generated can be used locally or sold to utilities for profit.
The Francis type Pump Turbines are specifically developed for 10 m to 120 m micro hydropower project of less than 100 kW. With simplified installation and an extremely compact footprint the civil installation costs are significantly reduced over conventional turbines
With an synchronous generator the output voltage automatics maintained, complicated control switchboard is unnecessary! When you partner with Forward on a Micro Hydro Power project you know that our systems will guarantee you solid results.
