Our experts renovated the 499 kW Caty hydroelectric power station.

As part of the demolition of the existing hydroelectric power plant and the reconstruction of a new one, our teams provided their know-how on:

  • monitoring the design of the plant
  • specifying the turbo generator and other electromechanical equipment
  • drawing up a set of specifications for purchases
  • monitoring the work
  • testing and commissioning

To do this, our experts oversaw:

  • the installation of upstream and downstream cofferdams
  • the demolition of the existing plant
  • earthworks and engineering of the water intake, power station and fish pass
  • the coordination of the installation of electromechanical equipment:
    • 1 double-regulated Kaplan turbine with permanent magnet alternator
    • 1 20/0.4 kV 630 kVA transformer
    • 1 automation and control system for managing the plant
    • 1 monorail with a capacity of 10 tonnes
    • 1 hydromechanical unit including grids, bar screens and a degreasing valve
  • the removal of the cofferdams
  • coordination for the commissioning and compliance of the installation
  • dry and wet testing
