Hydro & Hops 2017

This year’s OWA Hydro & Hops tour was in the Carleton Place, Almonte and Perth area this year.  Those on the tour were able to see Gedawin’s line of products and hydropower stations where we have completed projects.

This event, was the first public event that our new employee, Anthony Meehan took part in.  Anthony did a great job and enthusiastically answered all questions.  Way to go Anthony!

At the Appleton hydropower station, attendees were able to see our completed Sluice gate project and the control upgrades project that is currently underway.

Norcan was kind enough to allow us to show our products at their building.  On display there was the NovoTAS-630 and the NovoTAS-99.  The NovoTAS-99 is Gedawin’s newest product, it is a hydro control cabinet specifically for units that are under 100 kW.

 

OWA’s Hydro & Hops Tour

This year’s tour will be in our area!  And we will be a part of the tour.

One of the tour stops will be at the Appleton Generating Station.  At this stop, people will see Gedawin’s innovative control cabinets and NovoTAS-630 in action.  Also, we recently completed a retrofit of the sluice gate.  We added remote and local control to the gate and added a heating system inside the gate to prevent ice build up so the gate can used during the winter..

At the Norcan Hydraulic Turbine building, we will be showcasing our latest design developments.  Including the NovoTAS-99.  A hydro control system designed for systems that are 100 kW or less.

We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Standby Diesel Genset Installation Project Begins

Gedawin Novo Controls is thrilled to announce the start of the Standby Diesel Genset Installation project.  This project will take the staff of Gedawin to three different hydropower stations in Ontario. We can’t wait!

We have started to plan, organize, schedule and meet with contractors so the project can be completed this summer.

In this picture, Chris Dallaire of Integrity Electric is shown signing the necessary paperwork for their involvement with the project.  Mr. Dallaire, the owner and operator of Integrity Electric is a very hard worker and provider of amazing results.  Gedawin is very happy to have him involved in this project.

 

Algonquin College’s Applied Research Day

Applied Research Day took place at Algonquin College on April 12th, 2017.  Alex Brasier, Josh White, Daniel Gendreau and Hayden Strachan showed off their work on a project they had been working on for Gedawin Novo Controls throughout the school year.  The project turned out great and we are really happy with the results.

The four students answered many questions at their booth from a public that was very interested in hydropower and its benefits.
