The Glendoe Hydro Electric project was the last major hydro scheme constructed in the UK and for the preceding three decades. Shortly after opening there was a catastrophic collapse in the headrace tunnel and extensive remedial works were required to recover the scheme. Andy was closely involved with events after the collapse.
In this presentation he will discuss the collapse, the mechanisms involved, some lessons learned and describe the recovery project. This talk is set against the back-drop of a potential renaissance of pumped storage hydro in Scotland.
The conference will explore the implementation of COP 26 policies, including a wide range of topics which will positively impact the way we live our lives from transport strategy through using new and sustainable technologies.
