Feature Project 

2020 - PRESENT

Site C Clean Energy Project - Pump Skids

Site C is a 1,100 MW hydroelectric plant located near Fort St. John in north-eastern British Columbia.  The plant is currently under construction with a target completion date of 2024.  Beaty Hydro is responsible for the detailed design, procurement, commissioning and system training for highly customized pump system equipment required for pressure testing the massive 2,800 cubic meter spiral cases surrounding each turbine.  Beaty Hydro's design and procurement work is currently ongoing, with a scheduled system implementation date of Summer 2021.

UPDATE - February, 2022 - Success!  Beaty Hydro’s custom designed pump skids for Site C are commissioned and running like a top!  2 of 6 turbine generator unit spiral cases have now been pressure tested.  The critical concrete pressure embedment process is now underway.

UPDATE  - June, 2021.  As of June 2021 the pressure testing skids are fabricated and on their way to Site C.  Beaty Hydro is providing on-site commissioning, and will continue to support the Client with on-site assistance through implementation.
