  • The laying of 500m of high pressure pipeline from an existing cast iron pipe to a new turbine location.
  • The design and construction of a new turbine house to meet aesthetic planning conditions.
  • The installation of a pelton impulse turbine with generator and control equipment.
  • Grid connection and testing to engineering reccomendation g83/1.

Main parameters: head 85m, flow 30l/sec, energy yield 63,033kwh, output 14kw, co2 saving 31 tons.

On behalf of several Clients of Bell Ingram I have worked with Jamie Wallace of Highland Eco Design on a number of Hydro schemes and have always been very pleased with depth of practical knowledge which Jamie brings to any scheme . He has a good working knowledge of the design and construction of the engineering involved and is able to deliver schemes at very competitive cost.

Highland Eco Design were involved in every aspect of the design, construction and commissioning of our 27kw Hydro Electric Scheme in South Ayrshire. Since first meeting Jamie Wallace of Highland Eco I felt comfortable with the company's knowledge of the industry and their honesty in explaining the process that the whole project would involve. In all my dealings they have been attentive, straightforward and delivered a system which was well designed and fit for purpose. I was also impressed by the fact that they did not overstate the expected output from the scheme so I am confident that financially the Hydro Electric Scheme will operate as originally promised.
