BFL Mini Hydros

 In the global hydropower market, small hydro is emerging as the future. BFL is a world leader in the small hydro arena, having cultivated an extremely satisfied global customer base.

The hydro turbine is based on a simple concept. It converts the potential energy of water flowing against it into mechanical (rotational) energy. The turbine is connected to the generator, converting this rotational energy into electric power. Hydropower turbines are classified based on head height, or the height of the fall of water. There are low, medium and high-head turbines. They are also classified as having a vertical or horizontal orientation. BFL produces four, five and six-bladed Kaplan machines, Francis machines, and two through six jet Pelton machines. These applications range from 1-2 megawatt run-of-river schemes to 60 megawatts in a single powerhouse with tunneling and large water conductor systems

Rift Valley Machinery Limited is the only authorized Company to represent BFL in Kenya by taking care of all business related to Small Hydro Power Sector in the Country.
