Archimedes Screw Turbine in Islip Mill
We are at the beginning of installation works of 45 kW Archimedes Screw Turbine on River Nene for private investor in Islip Mill, Northamptonshire. This is another hydropower plant realized in the steel prefabrication system with foundation on piles. Steel channel of 10m length and 3,6m width is also based on pile foundation. No concrete is used in this installation and the system is environmentally friendly. 100% prefabrication enabled the construction cost to be lowered by 40%. The turbine will be equipped with hydraulic angle changing system. Diameter of the turbine is 3100mm, the head is 1,4m and flow 4m3/s. The installation works will last maximum 6 weeks.
