Hydropower scheme North Yorkshire, UK
At the quayside of Landustrie Sneek BV two large hydropower screw turbines, with a total weight of 64 tons, were boarded. Both Archimedes screws head for North Yorkshire, England. With a diameter of 4.5 meters, these are the largest screws manufactured by Landustrie so far and therefore too large for regular transport by road.
On location in England the hydropower screws are installed in an existing weir in the river Aire near Chapel Haddlesley and will generate sustainable energy for some 440 households.
