MINI WATER POWER PLANT - Paddlewheel drive

This plant has been developed for shallow water from 1,3 ft deep. This model was built around many problems such as Installation, repairs, river blocking, ... to get around. To drive the generator is used a paddle wheel of 5,9 or 11,8 ft length depending on the water speed. Due to the simple design, this is cost-effective, ingenious in design and function. Since the plant is built entirely on land, only two people are needed to install the HPP. No large machines are needed for installation or service, as this is a modular design. This model has been built for above water and is equipped with a lifting device for easy maintenance (ONLY ONE PERSON). The area of application of this small hydropower plant has been designed for electricity charging columns and private houses but also for third world villages which are located in remote areas and receive no power from the city.

Benefits over diesel generators.
No pollution from combustion. 24h. Electricity supply as driven from the river. Simple construction thus easy installation and repairs with defective.
Durable due to a few wear parts and high-quality materials.
