Project Details
Location:
Alhampton, Somerset
Hydro Source:
River Alham
Client's Brief:
Harness river’s energy potential, reliability, minimal maintenance, avoid debris accumulation, protect fish and wildlife.
Solution Chosen:
Archimedes Screw Turbine
Site Data:
Head 2.75m, Flow 0.6 m3/sec, Power 12 kW
Summary:
Commissioned in June 2009, this was the first Archimedes screw turbine installed by Potential Energy. The fully compact screw with a self-supporting tube was lifted into a very simple concrete intake structure and the lower end was bolted to a concrete pad in the river bed. Full remote control and monitoring is facilitated via a web based VNC ensuring trouble free operation and peace of mind for the owner who is often away from home. Generated power supplies the Old Mill House with surplus being sold to the grid.
