In Pipe Hydro Systems

Not a pipe dream anymore

The concept of ‘in-pipe’ hydro has been around for a while, this is when water supply pipe infrastructure, which offers sufficient flow, is retrofitted with inline turbines to generate electricity. In many cases these existing pipelines use an arrangement of control values to manage pressure reduction or slow waterflow, so the introduction of turbines to replace these can fulfil both roles if designed correctly.

MAKE MORE POWER FROM YOUR FLOW

Now AKS has introduced a high-performance ‘Name’ System with a selection of turbine types, sizes and pipe attachments that cross connect to the turbine housed within a containerised system/control rooms. The containerised system is prebuilt and installed with a project specific turbine, generator, and controller, ready to drop to site for connection and commissioning. 

The system redirects waterflow from the pipeline through the containerised turbine and back into the pipeline, the valve is retained as a bypass option should offline maintenance be required on the ‘Name’ System.

FLEXIBLE & SCALABLE SOLUTION

The System offer incredible flexibility and reliability with generation capacity from 30kW – 100kW from a single turbine, while multiple system can be place across a pipeline network to maximise your power generation potential. System management is pre-programmed for optimal efficiency and can be securely monitored and controlled via a smart device.   

EXCELLENT RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Providing all the benefits of fast implementation once project scoping and approvals have been achieved the ‘Name’ System can provide a faster payback and return on investment compared to any other form of renewable energy. There is also very minor civil or construction works required onsite at the installation stage, keeping cost and necessary approvals to a minimum.

RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

While this system is specifically designed to insert into water supply pipeline infrastructure it is also suited to wastewater facilities, water treatment plants, industrial factories, and water reuse facilities – simply anywhere liquid flows at a suitable flow rate, volume and head pressure.
