It takes experts to successfully modernize an old hydropower station. Norcan has over 30 years of experience in modernizing stations, a strong reputation, and a proven track record of projects delivered on time.

Propeller to Kaplan Conversion

Norcan can convert a station from an old propeller turbine to a Kaplan turbine. This conversion has numerous benefits to the power plant owners. No structural changes to the power station, very little civil work to install the wicket gates’ regulation, and the turbine runner diameter remains the same.

Small Hydro Power Units PGS & PAT Replacement

Pump-As-Turbine (PAT) is an alternative to custom hydro turbines for micro and small hydro projects. However, as an inverted submerged pump acting as a turbine, a PAT is prone to severe cavitation. Norcan has developed a significant game changer in the modernization of existing PAT equipment.

Barber Hydro Turbine

In 2013, Norcan acquired from Barber Hymac Hydro all of their Barber turbine design and data assets. These assets included turbine design, OEM parts design, and specifications. Norcan is ready to perform all necessary repairs, replacements, or upgrades with newer technology and improved efficiencies on all Barber Francis, S-Type, and Kaplan turbines.

Alastair Wilson

Gemini General Manager

Bracebridge Generation has been a customer of Norcan Hydraulic since 2005 and we currently own 6 Norcan units totaling 16.5 MW. Norcan worked very closely with us in these 5 redevelopment projects and they were extremely responsive to our needs. Timelines were always met, costs were within budgets and unit performance met or exceeded expectations. Norcan’s customer service is exemplary and they are a pleasure to work with.

We at Grand River Conservation Authority have been very satisfied with the Norcan equipment and working relationship with Norcan staff. There are Norcan turbines installed at two of the site where GRCA produces hydro, we are impressed with the quality of their product and their commitment to ongoing customer service and support. Simply put they stand behind their product and that’s appreciated.
