Vertical-shaft Kaplan turbines

 

The vertical-shaft Kaplan turbine is suitable for new plants, and also makes a good replacement for existing Francis and flow turbines, and water wheels. Little structural alteration work is usually needed and the annual yield can generally be increased substantially. Ask us – we have plenty of examples and references.

The inlet and outlet do not need to be positioned one in front of the other (as in a bulb turbine), but can be freely rotated relative to each other.
