The Pelton turbine – with vertical or horizontal shaft – allows using the water energy at a very high head (up to 1500 m) under a relatively low discharge.
The Francis turbine is appropriate for a medium or high head (up to 750 m) under a low, medium or high discharge.
The Kaplan turbine is best suited for a low or medium head (up to approx. 75 m) under a medium or high discharge.
Saxo Turbines, Vertical Tubular and S-type turbines
Tubular & Bulb turbines are optimum for a low or medium head. Their specific configuration allows to make best use of the benefits of a Kaplan runner without the need for a spiral case.
Pit and Bulb Turbines
Pit & Bulb turbines are intended for horizontal-shaft units and are suitable for low heads.
We design, manufacture and install pump-turbines of different types and sizes. A reversible Francis or Deriaz type is available - combined with a generator of either variable-speed or synchronous type.
Small turbines comprise different types of turbines (Kaplan, Francis, Pelton, Saxo-type, Reiffenstein) designed to equip small hydropower plants with an output ranging from 500 kW to 5 MW.
