Early water wheel test

Even though water wheel technology is relatively primitive in comparison to our modern technology, designing an efficient water wheel is incredibly complicated. It was difficult to find engineers who specialised in this area. Our early water wheel tests at Manchester University’s water flume facility proved un-fruitful. The first engineer we worked with didn’t believe it was possible to achieve our goals with our given budget. Thankfully he was wrong. After much hard work and with some more support from engineers at Plymouth University, we managed to get results.
