AJT Engineering Install Main Inlet Valve at Hydro Power Station

Guide at AJT Engineering has recently completed the installation of a new 30″ Main Inlet Valve for a client’s small hydro power station.
The new VAG Group EKN Hydropower butterfly valve, mixed with a Rotork SI-3 failsafe actuator, now provides the client with full automation compared to the previous guide operation.
AJT designed, manufactured and put in a model new spool piece in-house to match current face to face dimensions. Whilst Cadherent supplied designs for a support for the Rotork actuators substantial failsafe spring mechanism – this too was then fabricated by AJT at our amenities in Aberdeen.
The installation was then finished off with new galvanised handrailing to guard from the pit opening.
Many thanks go to all our valued suppliers and contractors who continue to make these tasks possible: Cadherent, Stoddard Crane Hire, VAG Group, Gareth Beck, Rotork, KGAL Consulting Engineers Ltd.
