    efficient hydro power

    Nustreem Turbines

    • (500 kw) utilizing 5 turbines 
    • 100 kw with 16 ft of head (drop) and 85 cfs (cubic feet per second) flow

    Based on this, for example:

    • 8 ft of head with 85 cfs will produce 50 kw
    • 16 ft of head with 85 cfs will produce 100 kw
    • 32 ft of head with 85 cfs will produce 200 kw
    • 40 ft of head with 85 cfs will product 250 kw (maximum head)

    Lower available flows within this range of head (8-40 feet) will also produce power, but at levels relative to the % of 85 cfs.
    Minimum flow required is approximately 20 cfs.
