Case Studies:
Power Stations

Doel Nuclear Power Plant

Lambton Generating Station, Ontario, The system was permanently installed after a successful three year independent trial to reduce entrainment of gizzard shad.

Doel Nuclear Power Plant

Doel Nuclear Power Plant, Belgium. Installed in 1996 and independently assessed, Doel is the longest running power station system supplied by FGS.

Pembroke Power Station, Wales. Pembroke’s fish deflection system includes MkIII Sound Projectors and is the largest permanent system ever installed.


Case Studies
Hydro-electric power stations

Lower Bear Creek, British Columbia, Canada. A new run-of-river hydro intake required screening and this case study outlines the first SILAS system installed in Canada.

Backbarrow Hydro Scheme, Lake District, UK. The BAFF was installed in the headrace of a refurbished hydro plant to guide migrating salmon smolt into a new fish pass.

Pembroke Power Station, Wales. Pembroke’s fish deflection system includes MkIII Sound Projectors and is the largest permanent system ever installed.


Case Studies:
Irrigation Schemes

Georgiana Slough, California, USA. To reduce losses of Chinook salmon a 192m BAFF system was installed and evaluated using the latest 3D tracking technology.

Head of Old River, California, USA. The system was installed to deflect migrating Chinook salmon from entering an irrigation channel and results from 2D tracking demonstrate its performance.


Case Studies:
Drinking Water

Doel Nuclear Power Plant

Beckton Desalination Plant, London. The UK’s first desalination plant required additional screening from an FGS acoustic system to protect the delicate sand smelt

Otterbourne Drinking Water Intake, Hampshire. Typical of the many drinking water intake systems installed by FGS, the system provided a cost effective screening solution


Case Studies:
Flood Defence Pumping Stations

Donna Nook Pumping Station, Lincolnshire. A SILAS system was installed to provide the optimum screening solution as part of the refurbishment of a pumping station.

Foss Barrier Pumping Station, York. The first permanent system installed by FGS, commissioned in 1995 following independent demonstration trials.


Case Studies:
Target Species
Asian Carp

Quiver Creek, Illinois, USA. Results are presented following the field evaluation of a BAFF system designed to combat the expansion of Asian Carp in the Mississippi.
