Hydro Electric Drive Project, Bury Black Pudding Company, Bury

Environmentally friendly energy is an important part of protecting our planet for future generations so we were delighted to be involved with supplying hydraulic equipment for a water turbine system based in Bury, Lancashire.

For this project we were asked to supply an environmentally safe hydraulic power pack, accumulator and hydraulic cylinder which is used to open and close the sluice gate on the River Roch that feeds water into the 60Kw Archimedes screw electricity generator.

An impressive sluiceway was custom built to house the turbine and a custom plant room built to house the electrical and hydraulic equipment. Our system is electronically controlled and opens or closes the sluice gate as needed. In the event of a power failure we built in a pre-charge accumulator system that automatically closes the sluice gate which in turn takes the main turbine off-line.
