Plant Modernisation & Optimisation Services

Gilkes turbines have an unparalleled life span. However, at some point during the life of a hydro scheme, there will undoubtedly come a time where plant modernisation will be required and certain aspects will have to be replaced, refurbished or upgraded.

 

Gilkes have a great deal of experience from single part replacement or upgrade to fully rehabilitating whole hydro installations back to their optimum working levels.

Modernisation can improve the overall efficiency of your plant.  Increased generation and reduced downtime can provide improved annual energy production due to higher reliability and lower operator dependence.
