Gilkes Hydro Site Open Day
21 Jun 18
Scotland and Northern Ireland
Pattack Hydro Project, Ardverikie Estate, Loch Laggan, Scotland
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
Gilkes Energy is holding an open day at the 5MW Pattack Hydro Scheme located on the Ardverikie Estate in the Central Highlands of Scotland. The project was designed & built by Gilkes Energy and uses 2 Gilkes Francis turbines. The Francis reaction turbine is optimized for high flow application, providing high efficiency at peak power. The scheme generates 20,000 MWh of annual energy generation; enough to power approx. 4,000 average homes.
This unique opportunity for future site owners, developers and those with a keen interest in Hydro will provide an insight into all aspects of a hydropower installation and features an impressive concrete dam.
Guided tours of the powerhouse, dam and intake will take place throughout the day and Gilkes staff will be on hand to discuss any questions you have about the installation itself and any potential hydroelectric schemes in development. Refreshments will be available.
Places are limited for this event; so if you would like to be part of this opportunity, please register your interest online today. Further information will then be sent to you about the site location and details of the day itself.
