The aim of this project was to exploit water, intended for the irrigation of certain areas downstream from a dam, for further energy production by employing small hydroelectric units with tubular S-type turbines. The whole installation comprised a separate power-plant complete with turbines, governors and transformers connected to the local 20 kV switchyard and control equipment. The operating history is outlined and details of the success of the project, including economic viability, are provided.
