Turbine type error[edit]

Article states turbine type as Francis. Correct type is Kaplan a development of the Francis. This can be verified from CHESF site (owner) http://www.chesf.gov.br/portal/page/portal/chesf_portal/paginas/sistema_chesf/sistema_chesf_geracao/conteiner_geracao?p_name=8A2EEABD3C01D002E0430A803301D002 The site is in Portuguese, but in the charts near the end under turbinas, tipo it says Kaplan. I can personally verify the type as I have pictures of a visit inside the rotor. I am not an engineer or expert. bwaii@yahoo.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.71.8.199 (talk) 18:47, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
