FRANCIS Turbines

They are typically applied to mountain rivers with medium flow and medium and high net head.

They are characterized by their reliability, simplicity, and efficiency. Pump-turbines, used in pumping power stations operate like a pump and pump water from a lower to an upper reservoir during low-consumption times to generate electricity in peak hours.

Thus, they produce more uniformity in the charging system of the electricity supply system preventing the excess of equipment and the excessive consumption of expensive fuels.
