The team here at HydroWorks has developed a standardised, water-to-wire, mini hydro solution for owners and operators of irrigation schemes. We call it the InRace Solution.
HydroWorks offers a full engineering, procurement and construction contract and an ongoing maintenance option that takes the risk and complexity of hydro generation off the hands of the scheme operator.
There are some more advantages and key features of the InRace Solution that makes it a sound addition to almost any irrigation project.
The InRace Solution generates a second revenue stream for the irrigation scheme
Every aspect of the InRace Solution has been designed to minimise initial and ongoing costs without compromising efficiency
The InRace Generator is controlled by a proprietary HydroWorks electronic governor specifically designed to enable high efficiency generation over a wide range of heads and flows
Innovative, low head, high efficiency propeller turbine coupled with a state of the art generator. Designed as a high quality, cost effective hydro solution.
