In 2019, Eagle Creek Renewable Energy (formerly Cube Hydro), General Electric (GE), and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) collaborated to deploy GE’s new advanced aerating turbine at Eagle Creek’s High Rock hydropower facility on the Yadkin River in North Carolina. The new turbine is designed to increase dissolved oxygen in the water, which is important for the growth and survival of many fish and aquatic species. PNNL supported the effort by providing its autonomous water quality monitoring system to collect data on dissolved oxygen both upstream and downstream of the facility. Watch the video below:
