The design of our HPPs focuses on plant core cash-flow, minimizes plant structures and future operating costs and targets long-term sustained investment.
HYDROPOL utilizes state-of-the-art technology, research and expertise to design low head plants with enhanced value.
These designs reflect our focus on plant core cash-flow, minimizing plant structures and future operating costs. We actively avoid much of the "high-tech" spending, instead targeting long term, high returns for investors.
Hydropower in developed countries focuses on two areas: Rehabilitation and the development of new sites. The latter presents a challenge. Over the years, hydropower was introduced on sites with easily harnessed potential while the development of less advantageous projects was left behind. More than 100 years of market growth plus strict environmental constraints in Europe have resulted in new plants requiring extensive development. This is where the expertise of the HYDROPOL Group comes in.
