Why Choose MannPower?
It was MannPower that first introduced the Archimedean Screw turbine to the UK in 2004. Since then we’ve installed more of these turbines than any other operator. Our engineering team continues to maintain many of these schemes under annual contract for satisfied clients. Now, as part of the TLS Energy group, we have built on our established expertise by diversifying into high-head as well as alternative low-head technologies.
We’ve accumulated experience and expertise designing and delivering low-head hydropower solutions from modest 1kW schemes through to huge systems generating hundreds of kilowatts. To get a clearer idea of what this scale difference means in practical terms, take a look at some of our case studies. As you can see from the map below we’ve got Archimedean Screw turbines and waterwheels installed and generating all across the UK – with more in the pipeline every year.
Mann Power Hydro Ltd is now part of the TLS Energy Group
We are very pleased to announce that Mann Power Hydro Ltd is now part of the TLS Energy Group, which owns and operates 10 hydroelectric power stations and 2 wind turbines with a combined capacity of over 6MW across the UK. These schemes are now among the portfolio of projects for which we provide technical services, allowing us to continue investing in the trained engineers and specialist equipment required to offer the best possible service to our customers. We also now have access to TLS Energy’s long-standing expertise in the energy trading market, in particular negotiating the best rates for selling the energy generated.
Consultancy work by the team’s experienced specialists will now be undertaken under the group’s consultancy company TLS Renewable Consulting Ltd. Our engineering team continues to operate from our office in Yorkshire with ongoing projects continuing as before. Having been able to create synergies between TLS and Mann Power, we have recruited additional service engineers to expand our capabilities. All maintenance contracts with our prior clients have been transitioned to the new company.

What Our Clients Say
The house is now toastie warm and 4 – 6 Kw doing a great job. I disconnected all the immersion heaters on the house phase…so now running 2 phase heaters!

The outcome is a scheme which will improve fish passage over the weir, generate a significant amount of renewable energy and provide much needed monitoring of fish migration over the weir.
