ROUTINE AND SPECIAL MAINTENANCE FOR EXISTING DAMS: VALVES, GATES, ELECTRO-MECHANICAL AND HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS

Vortex Hydra skilled technicians not only focus on the assembly and maintenance of plant and equipment originally designed and supplied by the company but also provide a specialist service in the maintenance and modern technology upgrades of equipment supplied by other organisations who are no longer trading, with the objective of improving performance by the upgrading and replacement of electromechanical and hydraulic components. In this regard Vortex have recently with the active support of a technician replaced the sealing rings on the spherical valves (DN1700) at the ‘La Higuera’ Hydroelectric Power Plant in Chile (the valves were previously supplied by Vortex Hydra in 2009 – see Vortex Newsletter No.3). The work was jointly planned to undertaken between the Vortex and the customer during a maintence ‘shut down’ period and included the training of local staff.

Since 2000, Vortex Hydra has completed such successful maintence work on existing Italian dams such as Pertusillo, Leone, Poma, Saetta, Corongiu and Campolattaro for example, where ageing obsolete equipment has been replaced with Vortex designed modern technlogical equipment particularily with respect to components for electrical and hydraulic automation.

The Vortex team are available to evalute, recommend and assist in ensuring an effective maintence programme is undertaken on existing dam plant and equipment. To discuss further please contact Mr Riccardo De Stefani at: riccardo_destefani@vortexhydra.com
