Multiple Screen Installations, Scotland

Client - Multiple Clients

Project Overview

Scotland has the bulk of the UK’s hydro capacity and as a consequence Dulas have supplied over 40 Aquashear Coanda screens in the country. As well as small single-screen sites, there are now more than 20 multiple screen intakes, including those for the Glendoe project.

Garry Gualach (1,350 l/s) was the very first large UK installation. This was npower’s first Coanda intake, followed by Inverbain (1,470 l/s), and Braevallich (several separate intakes totalling 2,370 l/s). Dulas also installed Aquashear screens at the privately developed Kinglas hydro scheme (1,820 l/s).
