"Just a short note to express our appreciation and to thank you and your engineers for the excellent work carried out during the recent annual maintenance outage at Kinlochleven.
The preparation and planning which went into, not only the annual routine maintenance of the machines, but also the replacement of the K2 runner was of the highest standard. This and the skill and application of your engineers meant that all aspects of the work were completed ahead of schedule."
Andrew C Cameron, Senior Power Engineer, Alcan, Kinlochleven Plant, Scotland
Since our first turbine installation in 1856, Gilkes Hydropower continue to leverage technology and innovation to increase the efficiency of our turbines whilst reducing the environmental impact. Gilkes Pumping Systems design and manufacture cooling pumps for high horsepower diesel engines using the latest 3D modelling and finite element analysis.
Gilkes Hydro has exported over 6700 turbines to over 80 countries and Gilkes Pumping systems works extensively all over the world with particular focus in the USA. Gilkes has a long history of maximising its export markets and won its first Queen’s Award for Export in 1969 and again in 2010.
Drawing on the experiences gained from over 160 years of designing, manufacturing, installing and commissioning hydro turbines and associated control systems we truly excel when it comes to servicing and plant modernization.
We provide services from supplying the original manufacture to supplying factory rebuilt pumps and spares to end-user. We support products through their entire life cycle direct in the US.
