The Glendoe Hydro Electric Project: Lessons learned following the collapse of the headrace tunnel
The Glendoe Hydro Electric project was the last large scale major hydro scheme constructed in the UK. Shortly after opening there was a catastrophic collapse in the headrace tunnel and extensive remedial works were required to recover the scheme. Andy was closely involved with events following the collapse and will discuss the collapse and some of the lessons to be learned describe the recovery project.
