Powerspout TRG

The PowerSpout TRG is a Turgo turbine which on a suitable site can produce up to 1.6kW 24/7, 365 days a year. If a larger output is required you can stack units to generate over 16kW on the same penstock and power cable.  Put each turbine in a separate shopping basket/order to avoid a high shipping surcharge. But see also twin packs below.


  • Head range: 2 to 30 (6.6 –100 feet)
  • Maximum flow/turbine: 16 l/s (254 gpm)
  • Minimum flow/turbine: 8 l/s (127 gpm)
  • Dimensions: 430 x 410 x 350 mm (16.9 x 16.1 x 13.8 inches)
  • Maximum power: 1200W (Standard) or 1600W (HP)
  • Maximum current rating 32 amp


Common version available are TRG 14/28/40/56/80/170/200/350.  The number refers to the operating voltage, cable voltage or "MPPV".  The runaway voltage off load or "Voc" can be as much as 3 x higher.  So for example the TRG 200 will work well with a grid tied inverter at 200V but may produce voltage approaching 600V when the inverter is not drawing power from the turbine.

A TRG turbine comes with:

  • 4 Jets and 4 valves (2” BSP standard - NPT optional)
  • All Camlock fittings and pipe clamps for 50mm (2”) ID flexible hose connection
  • (all you need is 4 x 50mm BSP (2”) or NPT male fitted on your penstock and 6-10m of flexible smooth bore suction hose)
  • A mid-range oil filled pressure gauge
  • Manual grease fitting as standard
  • 4 metal jet supports to prevent jet sag due to pipe weight
  • 2m of 4mm2 tinned PV wire for +/-/earth
  • 2 x MC4 cable connectors
  • 4 x Tek screw fixing kit
  • Rotor packing set kit included if we consider them likely to be required
  • 4 x spare jet inserts
  • 2-year warranty
