GoFlo self-cleaning screen at Catcombe Mill - Renewables First

GoFlo self-cleaning screen at Catcombe Mill.

As a company we have also applied our experience, skills and knowledge to the task of product innovation and development. Over the last year, with the help of grant funding from a scheme called, Innovation for Growth, our design engineering team has been working on the design and development of a fully automated, self-cleaning screen called GoFlo.

GoFlo is an evolution of earlier models of self-cleaning screens, designed and installed by Renewables First and Western Renewable Energy (now owned by Renewables First), and can be used not just for hydropower schemes, but also any other application that requires automated water abstraction and debris removal.

The Goflo self-cleaning screen meets all fisheries and eel regulations and can remove debris of a range of sizes down to 2 mm. GoFlo incorporates a range of innovative features, including a self-cleaning rotating mesh screen, and an innovative mounting system using a special pivoting-foot and guide rail to allow quick and simple removal and re-installation. The GoFlo self-cleaning screen also incorporates a sophisticated control system that is web-enabled for remote operation, programming and diagnostics, as well as range of other features that make GoFlo a unique system, including its ability to be easily scaled up or down to suit a range of applications and uses.

GoFlo has now been introduced to the market as part of a separate company, called GoFlo. In August this year, a team of our engineers recently installed a complete system on a recently installed hydropower scheme at Catcombe Mill, Wiltshire. With the onset of Autumn, the automated GoFlo unit has practically eliminated human intervention.
