At the forefront of technological innovations in hydropower generation
The increasing need for clean energy through the greater use of hydropower is a socio-political necessity today. We are here to make it happen. Our core business is the planning, design and construction management of hydro-electric power plants, multi-purpose projects and dams, including studies to enhance optimum compatibility with the environment and the fulfilment of increasing safety requirements.
Whether you need independent technical advice or a project lifecycle partner, our comprehensive in-house expertise allows us to provide the exact services you need to help identify and preserve your investments in hydro services.
We work closely with you, bringing best practice to your project gained from over 120 years of international hydro expertise. We’ll enable you to successfully execute your project, in a way which is socially, environmentally and economically responsible.
Our experience encompasses a wide range of conventional plants, from the alpine type comprising of long tunnels and hundreds of meters' head, to low run-of-river schemes developing a few meters of head, both with weirs and dams. Clients can rely on our expert services in dam design, based on our 100-years' experience, and on our extensive know-how, developed over the more recent past, in the design and implementation of reversible pumped storage plants.
As a result of the rising energy demands, many existing power plants are in need of rehabilitation and upgrading to increase energy efficiency, reliability and flexibility. For a continuous, economical operation of these plants, we provide our clients with complete renewal concepts and investment planning, renovation of penstocks and the optimization of turbines and electro-mechanical equipment.
