Strachur Hydro Scheme is a 350kW scheme that was built on the Strachur Estate, Argyll. Being Project Managed by Gregor Cameron Consultancy, we were contracted to complete all Civil Engineering aspects of the scheme, which included:
- Constructing the In-River Water Intake, complete with Header-Tank.
- Installing 2000 metres of 500mm diameter HDPE pipework.
- Construct the Powerhouse, complete with Tailrace and Headwall.
The scheme has been running extremely successfully for the client and it thought to continue to do so for many years. The water is passed through a Turbine, which generates the power for being sent back onto the National Grid.
