A nearby manor house used to be powered from a small hydro turbine running off the Logie Burn. We modernised the intake, utilised parts of the old system and extended the pipeline to harvest the maximum energy from the burn. The new scheme generates 12.5kW using the Pelton turbine shown below.
The scheme will generate enough electricity to power 13.5 UK homes
- Tyrolean screen intake box retrofitted to existing dam
- Pipeline length 750m (inc. 280m of reinsated pipe)
- Available head 85m
- Max.flow rate 23l/s
- 12.5kW Pelton Turbine
