Dependable Turbines Ltd. (DTL) was incorporated in 1978 and is now one of the premier companies in the design and manufacture of water turbines for micro and small scale hydroelectric power plants worldwide.   Our hydroelectric generators range in capacity from 1kW, e.g. home power, net metering or rural electrification, up to 10,000kW, e.g. independent power producers (IPPs). The turbine-generators harness water power to produce electricity in a form of renewable energy.   We can supply power house equipment all the way from sophisticated electronically regulated turbine generator units complete with switch gear and controls, down to basic turbines and related individual components with manual controls.  Our hydroelectric systems are built to meet specifications for grid connected plants as well as off-the-grid isolated sites.
Throughout the 40+ years history, we have built some of the best hydro power generators, and with installations all over the world, it is an excellent testimony to our efficiency, reliability and cost effectiveness of our products and services that much of our business comes from repeat calls from existing clients.  We have a reputation for getting the job done on schedule and on budget.

If you want to go green and would like pricing for hydropower equipment, please take a moment to fill out a pricing request form (Spanish form here) with your contact information and site specifics of your hydro projects.

We also have the expertise and experience to repair and replace existing hydro turbine components, from individual parts to complete water-to-wire packages.  Please check out our turbine refurbishment projects list and feel free to contact us to discuss your needs.
