About the entity

Gilkes
As a business, we offer a reputable single source solution for a range of hydropower turbines and pumps, working closely with our customers to ensure the highest levels of customer support, product development and 'whole life' cost value.

Gilkes have been awarded the contract to supply 2 Francis turbines for a new hydro project on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.  

As Royal Warrant Holders for the supply of hydroelectric turbines to HM The Queen, these will be the 4th and 5th turbines Gilkes have installed on the Estate continuing a relationship for over 120 years. The first turbine was supplied to provide electric light to Queen Victoria in 1898.

The 2 Francis turbines were selected to maximise renewable energy generation from the available resource on the estate and will generate 2MW of power.
