Spaans Babcock Screw Generator Hydro Turbine
The Spaans Babcock Screw Generator Hydro Turbine combines high efficiency with extreme reliability, fish friendliness and smooth running. This makes the screw generator a durable solution for the future. The screw generator works in opposite direction of the Archimedian screw pump. The screw pump pumps the water up, the generator screw rotates due to the flow of the water and energy will be transferred to the driver unit. The generated energy will be transformed by a generator into electricity.
*Ideal application of the screw generator with small geodetic heads
*High efficiency compared to the water Wheel and small turbines
*No fine screen is necessary
*Only a simple static bar screen can eventually be used to prevent large items enters the screw generator. This saves costs, prevent head loss and allow fish passage
*Can operate with variable and fixed speed
*Power generation up to 500 kW
