CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF THE TURGO
This year we are proud to celebrate the Centenary of the Turgo Impulse Turbine.
The Turgo was designed by Gilkes in 1919 by the Grandfather of Gilkes current Chairman. 100 years later and the Turgo maintains its place as one of the most popular hydropower turbine designs, testament to the longevity of the original design and technology.
