Finally the sluice gates are all installed and the system is ready for commissioning.
The first stage was to open the leat and test the forebay. In these photos the sluice gate for flushing the leat has been opened and the sluice gate to the turbine is closed. Kester is flushing out debris in the leat and testing for leaks.
It’s looking very much like next week we will be ready to open the sluice gate to the turbine and start the commissioning.
