Gilkes are the leading hydroelectric turbine manufacturer in the UK for projects up to 20MW
Gilkes Energy Ltd (GEL) specializes in the development of hydro power projects, especially joint ventures with landowners. Building upon the 160 year track record of our parent company Gilbert Gilkes & Gordon Ltd (GGG) we have put together a highly-skilled development team which includes a full suite of engineering, commercial, financial and legal expertise ‘under one roof'.
Along with providing funding packages to help our partners finance their hydro project we also manage the project through its five phases:
2. Permitting and planning.
3. Commercial and financial close.
5. Operations and maintenance.
To date we have helped landowners fund and develop 10 hydro projects in the range 500kW to 2MW which are now generating (see Our Projects), and have a further approximate 25MW at various stages of development.
