SediCon has installed and tested a 300 mm compact SediCon Dredge in a small Hydropower Plant called Barroso, located in Salgar, Antioquia, Colombia.
Barroso river transport large amount of sediments. Therefore, sediments are frequently deposited in front of the intake, affecting the operation of the power plant. The objective of the SediCon Dredge is to maintain the intake free of sediments. Dredging is done by gravity and without affecting power generation.
This is the first SediCon equipment installed in Colombia.
