Product Portfolio
  • Water Turbines


      • The classic for the low head ranges and high flow rates.
        Available up to an output of 5 MW.
        Standardized design, highest efficiency and precision workmanship guarantee exceptional profitability and a long lifetime.

        We offer the perfect solution for each application:
        - open flume, bulb and spiral turbines
        - double or single regulated
        - horizontal, inclined or vertical design
        - 3 to 8 blades

        Kaplan blades and guide vanes are manufactured on 5-axis CNC machines.

      • Available up to an output of 10 MW.
        Standardized design and highest efficiency guarantee exceptional profitability and a long lifetime.

        We offer the perfect solution for each application:
        - as open-flume turbine for low-head power plants
        - as spiral turbine for medium-head ranges
        - in both vertical and horizontal design

        Compact design due to direct mounting of runner onto the generator shaft.

      • GUGLER Water Turbines has also developed a programme for micro plants with an output range of 5 to 50 KW.

        - Pelton turbines, single and multi-jet
        - Francis spiral turbines, vertical
        - Kaplan bulb turbines
        - mobile and stationary design

        It is needless to say, that also in this category we offer our proven and renowned quality starting from the design to the manufacture.
        We are at your disposal for further detailed information.
      • Water Turbines Mechanical Components


            • GUGLER Water Turbines is also the right partner for hydraulic steel structures.
              Important auxiliary equipment such as trash racks, trash rake cleaning machines, gates and flaps round off our range of products.

              Everything of the highest quality - from the raw materials up to the manufacture.

            • GUGLER Water Turbines offers custom made upgrading and refurbishment solutions for existing hydropower plants.

              These offer substantial advantages in the long run:
              - increase in output and efficiency
              - improved automation
              - higher reliability
              - lower operating and maintenance costs
        • Water Turbines Controls


            • The heart of every modern hydropower plant is a high-performance, automatic control system.
              Process visualisation, monitoring and remote control systems offering the possibility for remote diagnostics and maintenance are gaining more and more in importance.

              We offer you:

              - digital governors and controls
              - governors and controls for micro turbines
              - low and medium voltage switchgears

              The control, monitoring and troubleshooting of the hydropower plants via a fixed or mobile telephone connection either from home or on the way have therefore become possible. Hence longer down-times and loss of production can be avoided effectively. We are in the position to carry out maintenance works on the control systems and to effect amendments and updates on the programme.
