Klabböle Power Plant[edit]

1898 turbine design

  • ... that a problem with the 19th century Klabböle Hydro powerplant (turbine design pictured) was that during operation the supercooled water froze to slush?
  • Reviewed: QPQ not required but nevertheless lets mention Speyer wine bottle anyway. A good translation for the Umepedia project
  • Comment: fixed faults and alts welcome

  • Symbol question.svg New enough, long enough, adequately referenced. Foreign-language refs AGF. Image is public domain. However, the hook fact does not appear in the article; the slush and the supercooled water are listed as facts in two different sentences, and no connection is made between the two. If this is what the source says, perhaps you could rewrite the article to match the hook fact. I also have a question about the page name. On most of the page, the name of the power plant is Klabböle Kraftverk, but in the title the second word is lowercase. Which is correct? (I also notice the same discrepancy in Västerbottens museum. Usually, in English, you capitalize both words.) Yoninah (talk) 22:33, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
  • I will have to do some research. It seems the "Brunnstrom and Spade" reference contains the super-cooled information. The website, other reference, didn't appear to contain it but I used Google translate. The Swedish Wiki article also uses the "Brunnstrom and Spade" reference for that claim. I agree with the title change. It could be in complete English too but I couldn't complete the move.--NortyNort (Holla) 12:41, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
  • I can't find anything online and can only assume it is the offline book. I pinged the author's talk page for help.--NortyNort (Holla) 23:41, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg I've updated this page to reflect the article's new name (nothing more needs to be done), but the article's creator has only edited once in the past month, subsequent to the above ping, and has done nothing about the article issues. At this point, I think we have to assume that Jopparn will not be participating, so it's up to the nominator, Victuallers, to decide what to do next, since NortyNort can't find anything to help.

Thanks @BlueMoonset, sadly I don't speak Swedish so I cannot search for the fact (in Swedish) - even though I might understand a translation once it was found. The sources in English that I can find come from the Swedish Wiki which "I'm sure is right" but we do need proof. Can I suggest that we find a new alt? Would this work?
(alt) ... that the 19th-century Klabböle Hydro powerplant (turbine design pictured) in northern Sweden is now a museum?
Obviously if we cannot find a hook then lets dump it as its no where near as interesting as the slushy one. Victuallers (talk) 15:18, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
ALT2 ... that the 19th-century Klabböle hydroelectric power plant (turbine design pictured) in northern Sweden produced electricity until 1958, and is now a museum? --Orlady (talk) 17:38, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg I agree with Victuallers that the slush is a better hook, but yours and Orlady's expansion of it is also good. Let's get this on the main page already. Foreign-language hook ref AGF and cited inline. ALT2 good to go. Yoninah (talk) 18:54, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
