Pump-storage hydroelectric station in underground mine

Pump-storage hydroelectric station in underground mine uses a high potential of deep ground mines after termination of extraction, it is a world novel solution with Pelton turbine set for large heads.

On the surface of mine colliery, there is arranged an upper retention reservoir connected to the downstream pipeline which is in the mine corridor, with a height difference of 600 m, connected to a complex set of the Pelton turbine with a 1000 kW generator.

The advanced generation Pelton turbine design uses several patent solutions by authors, oriented to new innovative features that ensure its operation in extreme mine conditions.
