Hydroelectric Power Generation

Automation Systems for Consistent and Reliable Hydroelectric Plants

Hydroelectric Power Generation

Intense regulatory frameworks and market pressures are challenging hydroelectric plant operators. Our hydro power plant automation and control systems help your company comply with environmental regulations, reduce downtime, and increase operational efficiency.

Efficient and Compliant Operations

Systems and Experience for Maximum Uptime and Regulatory Compliance

Strict environmental regulations have created reporting requirements that you cannot ignore. The complexity of the transmission and distribution infrastructure demand connectivity to systems outside the plant and real-time visibility to all plant areas for effective operation. An aging infrastructure makes it difficult to meet all of these requirements and impacts operational efficiency and security.
