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.
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.
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!
