All the latest from Gilkes
Wet commissioning of all 3 Gilkes Francis units for the Blue Lake Expansion Project has now been completed and they have been handed over for commercial operation. The new Gilkes equipment has become part of the lead hydro power plant for the City of Sitka and Baranof Island in Alaska. All three machines have been commissioned to run at 5MW each and have the potential to run at 8MW each depending on the future demand from the City. An official opening ceremony is due to take place in May 2015.
