The dark and hazy look to this picture isn’t a filter that has been added. What you see is a project being completed in a generating station during a complete station outage. This was necessary in order to complete a PF correction capacitor circuit upgrade at TransAlta Renewables’ Moose Rapids site.
The staff of Gedawin Novo Controls have returned from H2O Power’s Kenora Generating Station. Our purpose there was to re-commission the unit control systems to ensure that they worked with the new turbine/generator systems. H2O Power assembled a great group of companies whose people worked extremely hard to ensure that the work was completed at a very high level.
Great job everyone!
The Appleton Head Gate & Other Work project has been completed. The last task was to move the newly fabricated head gate from G3 over to G2. The G2 gains are better for storing the head gate.
We would like to thank Valley Sales & Equipment, Kanata Crane and Nortrax for helping us complete this project for TransAlta Renewables.
A new head gate was installed at the Appleton Generating Station. Gedawin Novo Controls would like to thank CIMA+ for all their hard work in designing the gate. We would also like to thank Valley Sales for building such an amazing, high quality gate. And finally, Kanata Cranes for putting the head gate in place. All three companies have staff that are easy to work with and will make sure that projects are completed safely, on time and on budget.
In order to better assist hydropower station operators, Gedawin Novo Controls has become a Registered System Integrator Partner of Schneider Electric’s Wonderware Systems program.
We are able to develop and support systems using the full Wonderware suite of products.
Any station owners that have been put in a bad spot because of poor, or non-existent technical support can contact Gedawin.
We’ll help you take control of your control and automation system.
Gedawin Novo Controls has completed an order for a client. What makes this order so interesting is that it is a custom made control cabinet for an electric actuator. The actuator is an oil-less replacement for Hydraulic Power Units that are typically used in hydropower systems.
Another interesting aspect of this order is that the cabinet required TUV approval. Getting TUV approval can be difficult because of their stringent requirements. The staff of Gedawin, were able to use their high level of expertise in order for the cabinet to achieve TUV approval.
We were quite ecstatic with the end result and so was the client.
The Appleton Head Gate & Other Work Project has started. This project will involve the design and fabrication of a new gate gate, replacing damaged grates, replacing enclosures, replacing and fixing railings and repairing the tail race frame.
These photos show the first step being taken for the project. This first step is the removal of the existing head gate from the Appleton Generating Station.
Gedawin Novo Controls will be returning for a third time to the OWA’s Annual Power of Water Canada Conference and Tradeshow. The event will be taking place at the White Oaks Conference Resort in Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario on October 29-31, 2018.
This year Gedawin will be in Booth 50. Please stop by and say “Hi”.
