Project review

This HPP will be situated on the Manchester Ship Canal, a 36-mile-long (58 km) inland waterway in the North West of England linking Manchester to the Irish Sea. This canal was built at the turn of the 19th and 20th century to allow large naval ships to reach Manchester.

Our projects will be placed on one of the locks of this canal. The Kaplan turbine will be located in an old pump house and the inlet pipe will be located in one of the pillars.
