MULTISTREAM POWER CORPORATION LTD.
The Douglas generating station owned and operated by Multistream Power Corporation is located on the Bonnechere River in Douglas, Ontario. The plant originally operated three 630 mm axial flow turbines as well as one Francis unit.
The redevelopment project involved replacing the four existing units with six new 800 mm vertical axial flow units, two Kaplan and four propeller units, raising the plant’s production capacity from 500 kW to almost 1.5 MW. CHC provided the new turbines as well as six 233 kW/600 RPM induction generators and hydraulic power units. Three of the four single regulated turbines have extended penstocks and their draft tube is turned 15 ̊ clockwise in relation to penstock direction. The new equipment was commissioned in 2010.
