21735-Installing 2500 H. P. Turbines at Gatun Lake Spillway, Panama Canal.


On the right side of the view, directly back
of the two men, is seen a turbine in c:aurse
of construction. The turbines wili be three
in number, one at the end of each of the
three- penstocks, each to be operated by
water brought thru the penstocks, or water
conduits, from the forebay. From the tur-
bines the water will be discharged into the
spillway channel thru openings in the chan-
nel walls. These turbines will form part of
a large hydro-electric plant to be used to
generate all the power needed in operating
the lock. machinery throughout the canal


zone, as well as the machine shops, the dry
dock and coal-handling plant. The plant will
also furnish electric lighting for the locks,
zone towns, and perhaps electric power for
the Panama Railroad.
There are to be three 2,ooo kilowat gen-
erators, two of which are to be in active
service while one is to be kept as a reserve.
At present there is a 6,o00 horsepower plant
in operation at Miraflores. It is an oil-burn-
ing steam plant and will be held in reserve
in case of accident at the Gatun plant.
