Headgate Replacement

Owner: Village of Hardwick Electric Department
Location: Wolcott, VT

Wolcott Hyrdo Station


Divers were used to verify measurements for two replacement headgates at the Wolcott Hydro Station. Using an integrated design/ build approach, replacement gates and stems were fabricated and delivered to the site. With the hydro units closed down, the old gates were removed, gear racks transferred to the new stems, and the new gates lowered into position all in a single day, minimizing downtime. In addition, a new unitized roof structure was constructed for the gate house which can be removed easily with a crane for future access.
