AJT Engineering Install Main Inlet Valve at Hydro Power Station

The extremely expert site team at AJT Engineering has just lately completed the installation of a model new 30″ Main Inlet Valve for a client’s small hydro power station.
The new VAG Group EKN Hydropower butterfly valve, combined with a Rotork SI-3 failsafe actuator, now supplies the consumer with full automation in comparison with the previous manual operation.
AJT designed, manufactured and installed a new spool piece in-house to match existing head to head dimensions. Whilst Cadherent provided designs for a help for the Rotork actuators substantial failsafe spring mechanism – this too was then fabricated by AJT at our facilities in Aberdeen.
pressure gauge 10 bar was then completed off with new galvanised handrailing to protect from the pit opening.
Many thanks go to all our valued suppliers and contractors who proceed to make these tasks attainable: Cadherent, Stoddard Crane Hire, VAG Group, Gareth Beck, Rotork, KGAL Consulting Engineers Ltd.
