Water facilities in Manizales with a surplus of pressure. This means the water arrives in the reservoir with great force, but this energy is not being harnessed.
To generate energy using the water being wasted through the excess pressure, and providing power for the public lighting in Manizales.
Tecnoturbines installed a Hydroregen turbine with 45 kW power at the entrance of the reservoir, to generate energy for the city grid and intended for public lighting in the area.
As the equipment is very compact, there was no need to build specific housing, and we used the previous location of the valve being replaced. We improved efficiency and reduced civil engineering costs.
