About the Installation

Dam_Square_Aanpassing.png




Turbulent turbine’s large-quantity manufacturing process and low-head design, allow us to install multiple turbines along a canal or river, to generate energy to its full potential without a large dam. So there will be no risk of flooding or negative impact to local communities.

Our power plants can generate 3 to 20 MW combined, and break even after only 3 years. The plant is highly flexible to design and to install, so it is possible to first install a pilot and then scale up the system with generated profits. This keeps your investment risk very low. Turbulent team has also designed a monitoring system for easy maintenance and a low operating cost.

 

Bypass of the Canal

Some canals in the valley have a gentle slope (less steep), but still a large flow and energy potential! We can use this energy by installing a turbine in a bypass that increases the height difference over the turbine.

Due to the low head design of the turbine these bypasses are kept short and low cost. We advise turbines of 100 kW or more for these applications.

Optimized for Canal Falls

Canal falls are a standard feature to control the speed in canals. Turbulent turbines are optimized for a height difference of 1,5 to 3,5 meters and can be installed next to the canal fall. The turbines will fulfill the same function as the canal fall in reducing the flow velocity, but also generate energy at the same time.

The installation of these turbines requires very little construction works. Only a small hole needs to be dug next to the fall and the canal can keep on flowing during the installation works. Moreover, hydraulic resistance of the canal fall isn’t modified and maintenance is easy.

In Canal with Overflow

It is also possible to install Turbulent turbine inside of the canal, just behind the canal fall.

In this case no civil works are needed, but the canal will need to be drained for installation and maintenance of the turbines.
