Repair (in the process) of Francis turbine wicket gate (138MW HPP).
Francis turbines are the most common water turbine used for electrical power production. Wicket gates around the outside of the turbine’s rotating runner control the rate of water flow through the turbine for different power production rates. Damage may occur during operation which may significantly affect the operation of the unit.
TEKUM’s repair solution was prescribed for this hydroelectric plant’s wicket gates. The solution has currently brought huge savings to the power plant.
