  • N° 6 Stoney-type flood gates, 18.75 m x 9.3 m (w x h)

ATB Riva Calzoni is supplying the design, manufacturing and delivery of the hydromechanical equipment, which are being installed and commissioned by Ponticelli Frères.

The operation of Beaumont Monteux hydropower plant has never been stopped: the installation of the Stoney gates and Flap gates has been performed one by one in order to avoid any reservoir drawdown and therefore stoppage of the hydropower plant.
