The project involved converting an abandoned hydroelectric plant that was set up for a Flygt flooded pit type turbine into a Z-turbine. The existing technology was outdated and inefficient. Gracon replaced the turbine generator and switchgear with a state-of-the-art Kaplan double runner type turbine.
