A large hydro installation using Parker SSD 890 AFE's for the regen inverters. The screws weigh around 40 tonnes each and run 24 hours a day. The hydropower scheme was built by Jackson Civil Engineering and is being managed by the Environment Agency. When both the screws are running they should provide more than half the power for the Queens berkshire residence.

None at all

 

You just need 

 

1. A Stream running down hill or with a weir

2. Enough money

3. Environment Agency Approval

 

Or do it in a shed 

 

Next OnOff mad venture (remember the solar collector (wicked by the way)) - OnOffs new HYDRO turbine :slap

PLEASE! My shed is for small scale hydrogen and free energy collector experiments only! :lol: Mind you the valley road running past the house was once unmade and in times of heavy rain a natural water course or so the older locals tell me. The last couple of days I could have dammed it I reckon!

 

Bio-gas digester / generator based on some obscure Nepalese plans is the next project with free "fuel" from the local stables!

You know there is a H gas out there that can be harnessed from water ?

When used as a Spaan pump the same mechanism is

used to lift sewage out of the collector pit into the start

of the processing sequence.

It was one of my most unforgettable sights in Dewsbury.

Did it really take the entire Roman army to kill Archie?

I read that it was one Roman soldier who killed him when

he refused to acknowledge his presence. The Roman army

had instructions to take him alive.
