Geoff Shewfelt of Gedawin Novo Controls took a moment to capture this selfie at a generating station in Mary’s Harbour, Labrador.
He’s there helping commission the station. Having the station up and running, lessens this remote community’s reliance on diesel fuel for electricity.
Which I think we can all agree, is a very good thing.
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.
Gedawin Novo Controls is happy to announce the shipment of a NovoTAS-99. The NovoTAS-99 is a compact turbine automation system for micro hydropower stations under 100 kW. It, along with a switchgear supplied by us will be used at a station in eastern Canada.
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.
