Hydro Power

Hydropower is a renewable energy source whereby electricity is generated from flowing water—usually water confined in a reservoir or a dam with an altitude difference of 2-35m and released to an electricity generating plant downstream. The water flows to the plant via pipes and passes through a turbine, at which point kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy.
Greenspark offers hydro powered options to South Sudanese businessmen.
Our company is specialized in hydro energy generation units from 10Kw up to 300Kw per system. We are specialized to construct and commission projects from 1.5- to 150 meter head. Welcome to our engineering world!

Hydro Energy + Concept

(1) Hydropower is one of the most popular and widely used forms of renewable energy; it is also one of the most reliable and consistent and can be used to generate electricity for all types of industry (2) The operation costs of a hydroelectric power plant are very low and the water can be recycled and used in a multitude of different ways: irrigation, agriculture, and domestic water supplies.(3) The power production at a hydroelectric plant is almost instantaneous due to the simplicity of the system. (4) Reservoirs can be used for other purposes as well as a source of water for the hydroelectric plant: in many cases reservoirs serve as a tourist attraction for water based recreational activities.

Power of water

When watching a river flow by, it's hard to imagine the energy it is carrying. If you have ever been white-water rafting, then you've felt a small part of the power of gravity water. Water rapids and cascades with a minimum head of one meter are suitable for energy generation. Energy is generated through the captured weight and pressure of water.

Civil and hydraulic construction

(1) Dam - Most hydropower plants rely on a dam that rconfines water, (2) Intake - Gates on the dam open and gravity pulls the water through the penstock, a pipeline that leads to the turbine. (3) Turbine - The water strikes and turns the runner blades of a turbine and in extension, the runner drives an alternator unit . (4) Generators - As the turbine generates momentum, so will a series of magnets inside the generator. These magnets rotate along copper coils, producing alternating current (AC) by transition electrons. (5) Transformer - The transformer converts electricity to higher-voltage current in order to minimize losses over transmission lines. (6) Power lines – The transmission lines transport the energy needed to the facilities and machines. (7) Tailrace - Utilized water from the turbine is returned to the river downstream.
