The Automated Screen Cleaner can operate 24 hours a day in any weather to keep your intake clear. Say goodbye to lost production from a clogged screen.
Sea to Sky Energy Solutions developed the Automated Screen Cleaner in 2015 at the Skookum Creek Power Project. Necessity is the mother of invention, and we were falling nearly 5 MW short of the plant’s nameplate capacity because leaves, grass, roots, and ferns would clog the intake screen during major storms. It was impossible to keep up with the rate of fouling by cleaning the screen manually, and we were tired of feeling cold, wet, and exposed. Our engineers developed and refined the Automated Screen Cleaner and haven’t looked back since.
With the SSES cleaner, you can say goodbye to unsafe and compromising cleaning tactics to maintain maximum production.
Stop watching production slip while you cant get there fast enough to rectify it. Never enter a river in spate again. Hang your harness up for good and put your worries to rest that operators won’t get stuck dangling above a dirty screen! No longer will you have to drive to the intake in adverse weather conditions.
An automated cleaner keeps the screen free of debris 100% of the time, SAFELY.
SSES engineers have 30+ years collective experience in the run of river industry. We know what is required of equipment to survive the extreme river conditions at intakes. The automated cleaner is designed with function at the forefront. Robust, reliable and fit for purpose.
This is a video taken showing some extreme flows at Rumbling Bridge. The cleaner maintains maximum production during extreme weather events such as this.
Graham, our controls engineer, has witnessed a tree bounce off the cleaner and continue downstream! Cleaner was undamaged.
The conception of the cleaner came from a desire to end fluctuating uncontrollable power production. Let your investment reach its full potential with the automated cleaner, convert all your available water to power.
Not convinced your missing out? Contact us! We will look at your data, run a conversion effectiveness study and determine if your intake is a good candidate for a cleaner. We are confident the numbers will speak for themselves.
The Automated Screen Cleaner includes a weatherproof control box, an electrical drive system with a weatherproof cover, a static line to support the brush, a drive line to pull the brush across the river, a return pulley for the drive line, two customized mounting posts, a custom screen cleaning brush, and all the hardware and cables necessary to put it together. No electrical wiring experience is necessary to install the cleaner; all the required cables plug in to ports on the outside of the control box.
The Automated Screen Cleaner will be customized to your intake site to ensure that the brush is positioned for full-screen contact. This includes customized mounting posts for the drive system and return pulley, and a brush made to measure for your screen. You have the option to use your own trusted fabrication shop to make the posts to drawings that we supply.
