Barroso is a 20 MW run-of-river power plant, commissioned in 2012, with an annual production of 131.2 GWh.
The 300 mm SediCon Dredge was supplied to remove the deposited sediments in front of the intake without interrupting power generation.
Implementation: The SediCon Dredge was installed, tested, and commissioned in January-February 2021.
Results: The equipment was tested showing excellent results, proving that the solution will improve the operation of power plant. During SAT, a sediment removal capacity of 192 m3/h was measured, exceeding by far the contractual requirement.
