Moose Rapids PFCC Work Is Completed

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.

Kenora Recommissioning 2019

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!

 

Appleton Head Gate & Other Work Project Done!

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 Gate At The Appleton Generating Station

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Appleton Head Gate & Other Work Project

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.

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.
