babyHydro Ltd was formed in October 2008 to specialise in the design and implementation of complete micro and small-scale hydropower solutions across Scotland.

Our Process

This takes us from the ‘Discovery’ stage where we scope the outline of the scheme, through feasibility, consents and licencing, project management of construction, and on to maintenance.

We are focused on run-of-river schemes between 1kW to 500kW and work with landowners, businesses and communities to identify the potential and then manage the construction.

What we do

We started with our Hydrobot® model which was used by the Scottish Government to assess the scale and potential for hydropower expansion in Scotland.  We continue to use the model in our core business (primarily in the Discovery stage) and have developed it to identify storage schemes and for other specialised surveying.

In 2015 we expanded our size range downwards to include pico hydro (0-10kW) and we now import the PowerSpout range of turbines from New Zealand.
