Frenich Open Day a Success

30th September 2013

Gilkes would like to thank all our guests who attended the Frenich Open day near to Pitlochry, Scotland. We had a fantastic turnout with over 70 people visiting.

The event attracted a variety of people wanting to take up the opportunity to see all aspects of a working run of river hydro installation. The visitors were given the opportunity to visit the intake and have a look around the operational powerhouse.

The Frenich Hydro Project is a 730kW project on the shores of Loch Tummel, not far from Pitlochry, and is a joint venture between Gilkes Energy and the landowners, the McKerrow family.

John Pullen from Coneloch Renewables who attended the event commented: "Great open day, many thanks for the invite.Thanks to all the organisers. Frenich looks a very neat scheme."

Gilbert Gilkes and Gordon Ltd will be hosting a further UK open day at a different site in Spring 2014, if you would like to be included on the mailing list for future events please email
