Successful Dry Test At Appleton!

Representatives of Troy-Ontor, Integrity Electric and Valley Sales & Equipment joined the staff of Gedawin Novo Controls at Appleton, Ontario on August 17th, 2016.  The purpose of the day was to conduct a dry test of the automated gate system. The system worked as planned and there were no issues!  The Appleton Sluice Gate Retrofit project undertaken by Gedawin Novo Controls is nearly complete. The automation of the raising and lowering of the gate is only one aspect of this project.  Gedawin is also adding heating to the inside of the gate to ensure no ice builds up on the face of the gate.  This will allow the sluice gate to remain operational during the winter.  Another feature being added as part of this project is to be able to control the gate remotely, either by the station computer or smartphone.

The OWA’s Hydro & Hops Tour

Small Hydro Controls Paul Norris

The staff of Gedawin Novo Controls had a great experience on the OWA’s Hydro & Hops tour.  It was great seeing lots of familiar faces and meeting new people.  The tour was thought-provoking because attendees saw old and new hydropower technology on display at the four stations on the tour. In the above image, you can see Geoff Shewfelt, President of Gedawin Novo Controls standing with Paul Norris, President of the OWA in front of Gedawin Novo Controls’ technology.

Douglas Sluice Gate Automation Upgrade Completed

Gedawin Novo Controls recently completed the sluice gate automation upgrade at the Douglas Generating Station. The station was commissioned in 2010 and Gedawin Novo Controls provided the complete control, protection, hydraulic and switchgear package. The new sluice gate controller seamlessly integrated with the existing SCADA system and the owner can now operate the sluice gate remotely using the station computer and his smart phone.  Gedawin Novo Controls would like to thank the station operator, Janusz Rydel for allowing this innovative technology to be demonstrated during the OWA’s Hydro & Hops tour that took place in May 2016.
