GLOBAL Hydro Energy

GLOBAL Hydro is a worldwide leading specialist for small and medium hydro power technology and is specialized in Kaplan-, Pelton- and Francis-turbines.

Since 2016, GLOBAL Hydro has been using SCHAAF products in powertrain connections of hydropower turbines. The main advantage of GripCon connections is the large force translation with relatively small construction size. Additionally, the tolerance compensation of these components is sufficiently large enough to avoid tedious adjustments during assembly. Optimized hydraulic tensioners simplify assembly and reduce the required time to a minimum.

GLOBAL Hydro appreciates SCHAAF’s competence in realizing custom-made individual connection-elements that are not part of the standard issue.
