Allt Gruiniche Hydro

This 50kW hydro scheme consists of a conversion of an old Scottish Water intake and will be fitted with a 50kW Gilkes Turgo turbine. Quite a difficult build with the penstock crossing a bridge, passing the old water tanks, and then reaching the power house through a culvert underneath the main Glasgow-Oban rail line. 

The project was commissioned in January 2015 and has been operating well since then.
