Construction Starts on Kendrum Hydro Project
6th October 2015
Gilkes Energy is pleased to announce that construction of the 0.75MW Kendrum Hydro project has started. Kendrum Hydro is located on the Edinchip Estate, near Lochearnhead.
The project is a classic medium-head, medium-flow design incorporating a single intake, high-pressure pipeline and a four-jet, vertical Pelton turbine in a purpose built powerhouse.
The project was developed to the point of achieving planning permission and the necessary permits by RWE Innogy and further developed to a "construction ready" stage by Gilkes Energy during the summer of 2015. After a detailed tendering and procurement exercise the project has now formally achieved 'Financial Close' and the civil construction team are now fully mobilized. The scheme is planned to be operational by December 2016.
