New 30-45MW hydro power project to replace a 1920’s vintage hydro station. The new development bypassed the original station and, with an increase in head, provided significant more generation from the same water source.
MTL and Hydroworks developed a turbine delivery strategy for the client that allowed the civil design of the station to move in parallel with the turbine procurement process.
MTL was appointed hydraulic structures designer, responsible for the detailed design of the gate structures and the penstocks.
Following a rigorous risk analysis, the station construction was deferred due to electricity market conditions.
