Troutline Hydroelectric Project
Jade City, BC
Client: Jim Dent Construction
We work with Jim Dent Construction to deliver a clean hydropower energy to remote communities in northern BC. The project is a 250kW run-of-river hydroelectric project. MidSea is responsible for the design of intake, penstock and powerhouse. Hydrology studies and watershed analysis was performed for different seasons to ensure the required flow can be achieved for power generation. One of the major challenges in this project is the icing in winter, which has a considerable effect of the intake design.
