HYDROPOL specializes in complicated rehabilitation/uprating of hydro power plants and has executed dozens of projects under very difficult conditions.
There are thousands of outdated plants across Europe that require investment in order to survive. Such rehabilitation is usually more demanding than initiating greenfield projects.
Constraints include: scarce documentation, inadequate existing structures, increased environmental concerns, project coordination demands and financing expectations.
Only by balancing all the varied requirements can we make a project successful. An over focus on "which technology brand should we use" is the most obvious error when implementing these projects.
Hydropower rehabilitation means above all having a deep understanding of the site, conditions, options and then bespoke management of their implementation. Technology plays an important but not exclusive role.
HYDROPOL has advised, planned and executed dozens of rehabilitation projects under very difficult conditions using various technologies. This has afforded us a specialist skillset most of our competitors lack. Such experience allows us to analyse and design schemes effectively, utilizing tools normally reserved for bigger hydropower projects.
Our successful operation of dozens of power plants is clear proof that this approach brings higher returns, quality and reliability.
