Among the essential sources of renewable energy, hydro has the lowest production costs. An advantage of small scale water plants is their low impact and disturbance factors for the environment.
offer you reliability of supply, they influence the reduction of dependence upon imported fuels whilst a legally-integrated national renewables market can offer the potential for profitable sales of surplus capacity. The typical water turbine for micro hydro power is the cross flow turbine (or OSSBERGER turbine, Michell turbine, Banki turbine). Isolated independent water plants are the preferred choice for renewable energy production for countries (partly) lacking a national power-distribution infrastructure.
is outstanding for:
- Manufacturer of small power stations with an experience of more than 100 years.
- Their considerable specialised expertise in the design and construction of complete small scale water turbine systems from the upstream trash rack through the turbine governors to the power generator and control systems.
- Almost 10,000 power stations world-wide - in more than 80 countries
- Providing confidence for an investment in a hydro plant with the sure knowledge that from OSSBERGER's proven reliability will come fast pay-back of investment derived from quality of manufacture and the optimised matching of system components.
