Transient phenomena modelling / simulationTo ensure the safety of hydroelectric facilities, HYDRO Exploitation has developed a proactive, systematic method of identifying, assessing and managing operational risks.
Analytical and FEM dimensioningWhen mechanical installations are inspected or rehabilitated, machine components sometimes need to be replaced or modified.
Welding activitiesHydroelectric production equipment is largely composed of joint welded parts. The entire welding process is a special process requiring a high level of skills and special monitoring from design right through to production. This will insure the sound operation and safety of the installations.
Non-destructive testing (NDT)Non-destructive testing makes it possible to detect cracks or porosity, bulk defects in a mechanical part, without altering it.
Thermodynamic efficiency measurementThe performance of the hydroelectric units must be checked at regular intervals to ensure peak efficiency.
Vibration diagnosisVibration monitoring of hydroelectric units is an essential task to ensure safe operation and reliability of the units. Hydro Exploitation provides a complete
service for vibration diagnostic solutions (measurements and analysis) on all
types of hydroelectric machines.
