First of a kind ORCHID©: ready to go!













The turbine of the first ORCHID© module has been assembled and the tests for vibration and bearings overheating proved conclusive. The turbine works perfectly even at high speed and over a long lasting period.

The construction and erection of the module have begun on the site. Each element of the module is in position; the piping and electrical connection are ongoing.
