ENEL GREEN POWER, a company of the ENEL group founded in 2008, which manages and develops energy generation activities from renewable sources, has chosen IREM S.p.A. as a partner for micro and pico Hydro projects.

An example of this collaboration is the “Michele Tessore” hydroelectric power plant in the municipality of Perrero (TO), a power plant built by Cav. Tessore in the 1930s.

ENEL GREEN POWER chooses IREM for the Perrero power plant
Originally the old power plant was equipped with a reaction group with a Francis type runner in a free chamber immersed in the loading chamber.

The new solution was designed with the inclusion of a Banki IREM Ecowatt Hydro horizontal axis cross flow turbine-generator unit. The turbine is positioned outside the loading chamber, inside the power plant building. This fully automated solution is easy to insert and manage and is characterized by reduced maintenance.
The system has an electrical power of 50 kW generated with a head of 10 m and a flow rate of 900 l/s.

The Banki IREM ECOWATT HYDRO cross-flow turbines, for installations in parallel to the national grid, are designed and manufactured entirely by IREM to offer a compact, simple and functional system with the aim of reducing to minimum installation and commissioning operations.
