  • SSE reopens 100-MW Glendoe hydroelectric plant after three year reconstruction project

    Generation at Scotland's 100-MW Glendoe hydropower project has resumed after a hiatus of almost three years.

    The Glendoe plant, owned by Scottish and Southern Energy Renewables (SSE), was forced to close shortly after its completion in 2009.

    As HydroWorld.com reported in October of that year, falling rock caused a partial blockage in the 6.2 km headrace that was to carry water to the power station.

    "The work to restore electricity generation at Glendoe has been undertaken in a very rigorous way to make sure that this strategic asset meets its original design criteria and is ready to play its full part in supporting the county's electricity system for many decades to come," says Paul Smith, SSE managing director of generation.

    HRW-Hydro Review Worldwide magazine included a feature about the Glendoe restoration in May. For more details about the reconstruction project, visit here.
