Yesterday and it was Clydach near Swansea to visit the Hydrolite turgo hydro factory unit. I am always keen to see stuff being developed and built especially if we install them at our sites. The 15kw Gorsen Hydro at Hafod y Llan already possess one of these little hydrolite turgo’s (A Turgo is basically half a pelton in terms of cups on the runner (wheel)) John Millen and I were down to discuss developing something new with TGV  and Hydrolite…More to come on this but it might change a certain segment in the hydro market. More to come!

I am a sucker for 3D computer aided design.

Clean factory unit, CAD 3D run development and quality control, stainless steel, unitised components and a drive to make future maintenance quick and cheap through design .
