1st December 2017

The Pattack Hydro project was one of four hydro projects commissioned in September 2017. The large dam is one of the largest structures designed and built to date by Gilkes Energy and the project involved:
 
  • 3,300 cubic meters of concrete.
  • 6,500 meters of pipe.
  • 196,000 cubic meters of stored water.
  • 20,000 MWh of annual energy generation (enough to power approx. 4,000 average homes).
  • 10 years of hard work!
 
The video below shows in timelapse the moment the dam was sealed and filled for the first time or click here for a larger view in YouTube.
