We have started manufacturing of a horizontal Kaplan type turbine with rotor diameter 1090 mm, for Davydovka hydroelectric power plant (Ukraine).
At the turn of November, installation works were finished in Scinawka hydroelectric power plant (Poland). The turbine operated there, with rotor diameter d = 950 mm, achieved the assumed design specifications. The design of the turbine with a vertical shaft in a pressure chamber is specific for an external control system, so there are no movable parts immersed in water.
We have started manufacturing of a vertical shaft Kaplan turbine with rotor diameter 1250 mm, for Gubyn hydroelectric power plant (Ukraine).
In late Septemeber, installation works in Chańcza hydroelectric power plant (Poland) have finished. The turbine operated there, with rotor diameter d = 590 mm, achieved the assumed design specifications. The maximum head of the turbine is 11.9 m. This particularly interesting facility uses water accumulated in Chańcza reservoir. The hydroelectric turbine is supplied with one of the bottom outlets with diameter d = 1400 mm – we have designed and manufactured a compensator with diameter reduction from 1400 to 900 mm, to which a DN900 knife valve is bolted, revision manhole and Kaplan turbine set.
