Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook Hydrolectric Plant
We were visiting the small Parc de la Gorge in Coaticook to view the river and fall foliage when we came upon this small hydroelectric plant. Visitors are allowed to look at the turbine and generator from a balcony.
The blue machine is the generating set. The circular volute of the Franics turbine can be seen at the back of the blue machine. It spins a shaft, which turns the generator, which sits closest to the viewer. The generating set is oriented vertically, which is different from the horizontal orientation of larger hydroelectric turbines.
