Replacement of the Kegums hydroelectric power plant’s water spillway shutters No. 6 and No.v7
From the period of October 2014 until May 2018, “Latvijas Energoceltnieks” performed replacement of Kegums hydroelectric power plant’s water spillway shutters with eight new shutters.
“Latvijas Energoceltnieks” was responsible for the total project management, organization and supervision that included electrical and automatized designing and assembling works.
One of the greatest challenges of LEC during the project implementation process was successful replacement of two large water spillway shutters with eight smaller shutters, not losing the flow capacity of the shutters as increasing the number of shutters automatically reduces the water carrying capacity (flow) per minute.
Although the project was difficult from the technical and organisational perspective and employees worked in three shifts, task was accomplished successfully.
LEC completed all works according to schedule without increasing the total project costs. In addition, the client JSC “Latvenergo” expressed their appreciation.
