Project Description

As part of the mechanical design of the Francis-type turbine by the Italian company TOYE S.r.l., ENGINTEC also took care of the structural design of the supports and metal structures that make up the turbine itself.

The INPUT data available is highlighted below:

  • Initial Geometry
  • site conditions
  • possible optimizations
  • design constraints

The results of the structure’s calculations allowed:

  • checking the structure of the hydraulic turbines
  • operating conditions
  • the condition of a ram blow
  • determining the correct interface with civil works
  • determining foundation loads

Project Numbers

  • Type of hydraulic turbine: Francis
  • Total snail weight: 4645 kg
