Propeller Turbine Vertical with Single Regulations

Considering a modernization project, the NORCAN Propeller turbine Vertical with Single Regulations, or Propeller turbine Open Pit Axial Flow Single Regulations will significantly increase the power output and annual energy production across the Propeller turbine range for specific project sites instead of a KAPLAN turbine solution. The result of NORCAN research and development optimization with the most advanced modern hydraulic geometries for higher efficiencies. NORCAN fundamental strategy is to increase their Propeller turbine range efficiencies to benefit the hydropower plant owners. NORCAN R&D in-house Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD, FEA, and FMEA engineers collaborate with one of Europe's top turbine hydraulic fluid machinery dynamic laboratories located in Austria supporting NORCAN in Austria. Numerical Simulation is successfully applied with CFD, FMEA from the laboratory research analysis on homologous runners on physical test rig experimental trials from our turbine hydraulic fluid lab cooperation in Austria for acceptance and approval. Test according to IEC 60193, ISO 9906, IEC 60534. NORCAN will deliver you the best quality made in Canada with core components sourced in Canada and the U.S.A.
