Gilkes to open third U.K. hydro servicing plant

Hydroelectric turbine manufacturer Gilbert Gilkes and Gordon Ltd. has announced its plan to open a new Hydro Service Centre in Invergordon, Scotland.

The company's latest servicing plant will complement those already operating in Kendal, England, and Fort William, Scotland.

Gilkes says the Invergordon site will offer annual preventative maintenance inspection for both mechanical and electrical components, service contracts, breakdown response and emergency call out, upgrade and modernization services, and insurance inspections.

Gilkes did not specify when the plant is expected to open.

HydroWorld.com reported in March that the company had announced its plan to open a new office in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Gilkes is also providing a unit for the Youngs Creek hydropower project in Washington.
