Four 500 kW hydro schemes, built in 2016 in Leckie valley in Scotland close to the village Kinlochewe, belong to HYDROPOL's most challenging projects in Scotland.

In the heart of Scottish wilderness we were faced with difficult environmental and ground conditions (deep peaty fields). Four hydro schemes were built in a very remote location during only eight months. We had to build more than 12 km of access tracks and 4 bridges to be able to access the valley. More than 60 people lived on the site in a small artificial village with all necessary infrastructures.

As a general and principal contractor, HYDROPOL provided the site complex development, preparation of relevant studies, permitting, project design and engineering services and complete EPC delivery.

All these projects were completed in December 2016.

We are responsible for operation and maintenance of these plants.
