Technology

It is used the VLHTM – (Very Low Head Turbine Model) which is designed to fit into gates or bypass channels at existing civil works thereby eliminating the costs, time of permitting and construction of those facilities with minimal environmental impact compared to conventional hydro facilities. The VLHTM turbine is entirely submersible allowing a very silent operation and almost no visual impact. It is mounted slanted and can be removed from the sluice passage way by a lifting system so the unit can be raised for maintenance or to recuperate the full evacuation capacity of the waterway during high flow.  The low rotational speed of the runner (35 rpm) make the VLHTM a fish friendly turbine allowing extremely low impact migration through the turbine runner.
