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”.
This year’s 2018 Hydro & Hops Tour, put on by the OWA took place in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. The tour this year showcased hydropower stations that were 100 years old. Thus further reinforcing how durable and long-lasting hydropower equipment is as a renewable energy option.
The staff of Gedawin Novo Controls will be attending the OWA’s Hydro & Hops Tour on Friday, June 1st. This year’s tour will take place in the Peterborough area. The tour will be visiting the Ranney Falls Generating Stations, Healey Falls Generating Station, London St, Generating Station and ending at the Smithaven Brewery.
We are very excited to be on the tour again this year and can’t wait to see these hydropower stations and the people of the hydropower industry.
Gedawin Novo Controls is pleased to announce the completion of the Standby Diesel Genset Installation project. The work for this project was completed at three hydropower stations located in Ontario, the Misema, Ragged Chute and Moose Rapids stations. Each station now has a diesel genset as back-up power. During power outages, the diesel genset is started by an automatic transfer switch.
We would like to thank all employees, operators and subcontractors for all their hard work in making this project a success.
We are now ready for POWC 2017! We look forward to visiting with old friends and colleagues and meeting new people. Come check out the NovoTAS-99 and NovoTAS-630 at booth 46. The best systems for automating and controlling hydropower systems under 10 mW.
The staff of Gedawin Novo Controls has arrived at Niagara-on-the-Lake for the Ontario Waterpower Associations’ POWC 2017. Here we are getting our booth ready for the big show.
Gedawin Novo Controls has completed an upgrade of the automation and controls system at the the Galetta hydropower station located in Ontario. The first picture shows the original control units that were replaced by one NovoTAS-630. This upgrade was done for the two turbine/generator units located at this station.

The final diesel standby diesel genset was delivered to the Moose Rapids hydropower station. The is the last of three gensets delivered to site as part of the Standby Diesel Genset Installation project that Gedawin has undertaken for the summer of 2017. Before the genset could be delivered to site, it had to be overhauled and cleaned up after it was removed from the Misema hydropower station. The overhaul of the genset was done by the Toromont Power Systems shop located in Sudbury. Their staff is great, they provided valuable work and information.
