aqueduct and run-of-river power plants
Run-of-river hydroelectric power plants
A run-of-river hydroelectric power plant consists of civil and hydraulic works and electromechanical equipment and is built to convert the potential energy of water flowing from a higher point than the level of the turbines.
The two main factors for determining the power that can potentially be generated are:
- head: the difference in height between the location of the water resource and the point of outlet;
- flow rate: the amount of water available for the turbine, net of the discharge (MVF) required by law.
Energy for your future
Energy that is safe, always renewable and respects the environment. This is what designers are looking for and what LUMIEI plants can deliver.
The increasing demand for new power plants and for the renovation of existing hydroelectric power stations can find a technological and cost-effective solution in the machines built by LUMIEI Impianti, suitable for all head and flow conditions.
Maintenance requirements are kept to a minimum, thanks to the characteristics of the materials and parts used, while high levels of automation and control of the hydraulic turbines ensure the safety and reliability of operations.
