The project has enabled the construction of a whole family of axial and helical micro-turbines. These were standardised according to criteria of maximum constructional simplicity for small water heads and were thus designed for operation in small hydro-electric plants both in parallel with the mains and in isolated self-contained service. Standardising was able to achieve notable scale economies during the design and constructional phases, while maintaining high efficiency operative levels for both turbines and plant.
