Generator and Governor Conversion

Owner: Bethel Mills Hydro
Location: Bethel, VT

Bethel Mills Hydro Station


After an electrical fire destroyed the 1898 belt-drive generator, Fairbanks Mill, Inc. installed a new 250 kw generator with right angle gearbox coupled to the existing vertical turbine. An automated control system was added, and the existing low pressure governor was converted to high pressure hydraulic operation. This historic site also features a new penstock, bifurcation, and vertical turbine / generator all installed by FMI over the past 15 years.
