Rehabilitation of hydropower plants

Rehabilitation of hydropower plants

In a changing market, knowing the best time to rehabilitate your hydropower plant can present a major challenge. Effective analytical tools will help you make sound decisions.

Our software can be used both to perform economic analyses and to guide your decisions on investment and rehabilitation in relation to production capacity and reservoir size. The models can also analyse pump operation, both for seasonal and intra-week/24-hour pumping, and can be used to provide the correct notification of when to re-invest in pump capacity.

Our work is in the following fields:

  • Client-tailored analyses
  • Model development

We typically carry out the following types of project:

  • Model development tailored to intra-week operations
  • Analyses of timing of reinvestment
