Kaplan turbines with a flat efficiency curve can – without utilisation losses within the part load range – be designed for a large nominal flow.
- Most compact low-maintenance construction, that can be mounted easily
- Individual plan of installation of turbine
- Development and construction by CAD
- Large flow
- Small civil requirements in case of new buildings
- Optimal with frontal admission and discharge
