Massachusetts installation

The NuTURBINE LR-100 was installed in a small site in Massachusetts. A singular NuTURBINE using a 100 kW generator was installed in 2014. This installation has in-excess of twenty- five thousand (25,000) operational hours.

The generator size chosen was due to the energy available in the river. The application is a replacement of two older Francis turbines that were no longer operating efficiently in a small dam configuration.

The operator of this facility is happy with the turbine after approximately five years of operation. He said that the uptime and the efficiency of the system were greatly improved from the former installed hydroturbines.
