Collaboration in Singular Projects

Collaboration in Singular Projects

Due to its know-how, experience and capacity of involvement and undertaking, Gometegui is the ideal technology partner when undertaking any kind of project. If the project also requires the manufacture of large-size capital goods and/or high technical requirements, Gometegui can become a key element for success.

In recent years, we have taken an active part in such outstanding projects as the following:


Haleakala solar telescope (Hawai)

GOMETEGUI is taking part in the construction of the advanced technology solar telescope which will be installed on Mount Haleakala on the island of Maui, HAWAII. The telescope will be the largest in the world and it is expected to make important advances in the study of the cosmos. We are taking part in this project together with the Basque companies Hilfa and Idom.

 

 


The Three Gorges Dam (China)

The Three Gorges dam on the Yangtze river in China is one of the largest engineering works carried out during the period from the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. The dam is being built beside the city of Yichang, in Hubei province, in the centre of China. The future reservoir will bear the name of Gorotkia, and will contain 39,300 hm3 of water. It will have 32 turbines of 700 MW each, 14 installed on the northern side of the dam, 12 on the southern side and six more underground turbines with a total of 24,000 MW of power.

GOMETEGUI has taken part in this project with the manufacture of a turbine rotor  built for our client ALSTOM.

Wind Turbine Test Laboratory CENER

The LEA is an infrastructure dedicated to testing and testing of wind turbines ranging from the testing of components to complete wind turbines, according to international standards. It complements the work CENER research in the field of wind energy.
Gometegui has worked with the LEA performing advisory work in construction, contributing their knowledge to solve various construction details, and as a partner in the manufacture and assembly of test benches for wind generators.
