Casnigo (BG), Italy
A typical “power plant rehab” project, in which the entire electromechanical equipment was renewed in the power house. This project required special attention as parts of the existing plant remained (power house, penstock, catchment). The three existing generator sets were replaced by two new sets, with the existing outlet channel used. Only during the dismantling of the old equipment sets could the material of the existing penstock be determined and checked for its weldability.
