Although small hydro schemes are designed to be autonomous, they do require a certain level of management and maintenance to prolong equipment life and ensure effective operation within regulatory parameters. There are three key areas to consider when operating a hydro scheme:
Operation & Performance – to ensure the scheme makes the most of the resource available and is producing what it is expected to produce
Compliance – to ensure that the scheme does not cause any environmental damage and operates within its licence parameter
Maintenance – to ensure longevity and to reduce risk to the owner and operator
The services we offer include:
Performance Testing and Monitoring
