Brookfield Renewable – Inghams Hydro

Ivyland, PA – American Governor Company (AGC) was awarded a contract by Brookfield Renewable to replace the controls on the first of two units at Inghams Hydro. The unit was originally furnished with a Pelton type “E” mechanical governor that had been converted by Woodward to include a 505H system with an FC-Valve. AGC’s contract is to replace the unsupported 505 controller.

Construction began on the dam and powerhouse in 1908, contains two 3MW vertical Francis units, and was previously owned by Niagara Mohawk.
