Piloting a project on Propeller Turbine for Low Head Energy Generation

Low head energy generation through use of Propeller turbine was tested in Peru and was a success, which is not used in Nepal yet. Thus, Nepal Energy Foundation with the support from Practical Action Nepal conducted a pilot project to study the feasibility of Propeller Turbine in Nepal. The test site was selected in Bukhel, Lalitpur and the results showed that Propeller Turbine can be used for energy generation using low head in Nepal too. Duration of the project was one year starting from January to December 2017.
