  • The potential impacts of climate change on hydropower generation in Mid Wales

    Hydropower is a potential large source of electricity supply in Wales. The Upper River Severn in Mid Wales is a typical stream where a high head hydropower scheme could be developed and the river system at Plynlimon has some of the longest records for weather and flow in Wales. A micro-hydropower potential of 99 kW is demonstrated at Plynlimon and the potential impacts of climate change are ...

    Medium and Large Hydro Generators

    All of our medium and large hydro generators (> 50 MVA) feature oblique elements. This mechanical design principle allows perfect concentricity and circularity of all generator components under any operating condition. Furthermore, it reduces the thermo-mechanical stresses on the generator structure, which contributes to an improved reliability and lifetime.
