One of the world's principal sources of renewable energy, hydropower is a resource which growing numbers of countries are turning in their search for replacements for fossil fuel and other dwindling alternatives. In the near future hydropower will presumably play a key role in complementing intermittent renewable power, such as wind and solar.

Our specialists hold comprehensive experience to plan and design power plants in versatile and ever changing and often challenging environmental condition. This background comes from operating with complex and varying geological conditions, very high seismic loads, floods due to volcanic eruptions, super cooled water and anchor ice formation, glacial rivers and sedimentation.
