Waterpumps WP Oy’s hydro turbines are designed for small
hydro on low head sites. There are two main designs of turbines,
tube and compact type. The designed head may vary from 1 to
30 meters and the flow of the unit can be fixed or regulated.
Many of the plants designed for WP Oy’s products are
equipped with several turbine generators to meet the cost
effective civil works and high energy production.
WP Oy’s hydropower turbines can be placed directly in
the waterways. The installation angle of the turbine may be
chosen freely to make the construction work as cost effective
as possible. The machinery can also be easily integrated to
existing structures and this enables the use of old powerhouse
as much as possible. The power plant building time is brought
to minimum and the old, often historical values consisting
powerhouse may preserve its original look.
The building may be completely under
ground leaving the surroundings unaffected. This is very important
now when nature and environmental aspects carry a special
weight. Conservationists have, in fact, endorsed our alternative
whenever landscape and nature are considered essential.
Hydraulically operated sluice gates are designed and manufactured
by Waterpumps WP Oy. They can be single or double cylinder operated
and equipped with heating for winter operation.
Waterpumps WP Oy delivers low head water pumps for agricultural, irrigation
and other purposes demanding high volume pumping capacity.
The pumps are of stainless steel and can be operated with direct grid
connected or with frequency converter. Pumping capacity starts from
20 l/s and the larger end is around 12 000 l/s. The maximum head for
WP Oy’s axial pumps is from10 to 12 meters.
