Location:
Iwerne Minster, Dorset.
Hydro Source:
Fontmell Brook (Dorset Stour Tributary)
Client's Brief:
Install a low cost hydropower system to run alongside the existing waterwheel which is still in regular use for grinding corn. Single phase power is to be supplied to the farmhouse.
Solution Chosen:
Cross Flow Turbine.
Site Data:
Head 3.9m, Flow 150L/sec, Power 3.4 kW
Summary:
A small cross flow turbine was installed and commissioned in November 2012. The turbine is supplied through a 300 mm HDPE penstock from an intake screen in the chalk stream fed Mill pond. The turbine automatically shuts down when the water wheel is used for grinding corn.
