Sector gate for Rio Colorado, Chile

W&B delivered a sector gate with electric drive for a hydro power plant at the river Colorado in the Chilean Andes.

Due to transportation reasons the gates had to be designed in a split to 2 segment version. Installed to the bottom outlet of the wear at a height of approx. 1000 m a.s.l it will provide a safe discharge of the river with its huge amount of bottom load.
