Dolgarrog Powerstation Modernisation
Plant Modernisation Case StudyRead More
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 scheme. Increased generation and reduced downtime can provide improved annual energy production due to higher reliability and lower operator dependence.
Optimising components with updated technology can help you meet changing compliance regulations and offer plant safety improvement.
Following a site survey and condition assessment by our engineers, Gilkes can offer refurbishment and optimisation work for both mechanical and electrical equipment: From small components, through re-governing, right through to complete turbine replacement resulting in improved performance and functionality.
