Dam Cylinders

Pressure Hydraulics & Controls have just completed a two year repair program for ESB Lee Stations, Carrigadrohid and Inniscarra stations. We were awarded the contract to remove and repair a total of 24 cylinders, intake gate cylinders, brake cylinders and guide vain cylinders.

Cylinders installed in 1958 and this is the first time being removed…

We had to remove the cylinders via a special scaffolding (You can see on top of the dam wall) as a crane could not reach and repaired them in our Cork facility…
