Archimedean Screw Specialists
MannPower Consulting Ltd was established in 2004 by Dave Mann. With a background in seismic and electronic engineering, Dave pursued a successful 15-year career in technical project management around the globe. On returning to the UK he took the opportunity to turn his lifelong passion for the potential of hydropower into a career – forming MannPower as an independent consultancy.
Seeking a viable hydropower solution for a Georgian watermill within an SSSI on the River Derwent in Yorkshire, MannPower’s extensive research led them to the Archimedean Screw turbine. With its fish-friendly characteristics and high efficiency rates it was perfect for the job.
In fact Dave and his company were so impressed with the benefits of the Archimedean Screw turbine that they pioneered its introduction to the UK. Now MannPower supplies this equipment throughout the UK and Ireland as well as providing expert consultancy services. Dave is now a regular speaker at British Hydropower Association conferences and seminars.

Our newest and valued member of the Engineering team. Pilar, from Valencia in Spain is now tripping around the sunny UK programming control panels to ensure smooth and efficient operation of the new installed hydro power systems. When Pilar is not at work, she is socialising and out on adventures, surprisingly she has more Spanish friends here than back in her home country.
Georgie has recently taken over the mammoth job of the company accounts. After previously building up experience in renewables working for a biomass fuels provider she has now ventured into the complex world of hydro power. Georgie is an energetic member of the team who can regularly be found mountain biking in the North York Moors with her family. Her main duties include keeping the rest of the engineers on track and to account!
