The intake pipe through the dam was replaced in an effort to improve the flow into the system and increase generating capacity.
The dam is located 1100 ft above Inverie with access only by foot. This presented a logistical challenge for both design and construction as the maximum payload of the helicopter was 750 kg.
Latest load test reports indicate a massive 25% increase in generating capacity now up to 241 kw.
This will be the first time for years the Knoydart power can operate at peak load without using backup diesel generators.
