All the latest from Gilkes
Today Gilkes are proud to sponsor HydroVision's technical tour of The Robert V. Trout Hydropower Plant. The 2.6-MW scheme is a new hydroelectric facility located at the Bureau of Reclamation's Carter Lake Reservoir near Berthoud, Colorado. It takes advantage of existing irrigation and municipal water releases from the Colorado-Big Thompson system. The plant contains two horizontal Gilkes Francis units each rated at 1,300 kilowatts. For further information about the scheme please see our case study.
