Roshven Hydro-electric Power Station opens

A new 500kw hydro-electric power station opens in Roshven

May 25th 2009 saw the Scottish Government's Energy Minister, Jim Mather MSP, open a new hydro-electric power station which uses water piped from a new dam high on the Irine Burn, Roshven.

Installed by a joint venture between TLS Hydropower and Alistair Forbes, the landowner, the station will supply 550kw of electricity to the National Grid, and has been built with a minimum of disturbance to the environment.

Jim Mather opens the hydro scheme.
