Alstom wins Scottish Power order

Alstom has won an order for approximately EUR 5 million from Scottish Power to refurbish two hydro power stations, Carsfad and Earlstoun, located in SW Scotland. Alstom’s Rugby-based Hydro Power Unit is responsible for the management of this refurbishment project. Both Carsfad and Earlstoun are part of the Galloway Scheme that involved the construction of five hydro power stations between 1930 and 1936, all powered by water from the same catchment area in Galloway. The Carsfad and Earlstoun power stations, both built in 1936, have a current capacity 12 MW and 13 MW respectively. The scope of supply includes new runners and guide vanes, regulating gear, spiral casings, draft tubes, stop logs and station cranes. The new runner will be designed, and manufactured in Alstom’s facility in Grenoble, France.
