The GoFlo screen company started with the acquisition of Western Renewables Energy by Renewables First in 2013. Western Renewables Energy had made a small number of self-cleaning screens over a number a years for their own projects, and the travelling water screens had proved to be effective and reliable. The early travelling water screen versions were relatively small and although tough, wouldn’t cope with the extreme loads experienced by larger intakes in higher flow conditions. Renewables First developed the concept into a much more rugged travelling water screen design and for much larger intakes, and the result was the GoFlo screen.
GoFlo is an independent company but shares the office and workshop facilities with Renewables First at their main site in Stroud, Gloucestershire. The company has grown quickly and is now actively selling into the wider EU market and expects to be trading outside of the EU in the near future. GoFlo screens are 100% UK manufactured using the highest quality materials in our workshop, alongside the engineers that design and install them.
