Hydropower

Hydropower – a fountain of new growth

Hydroelectric power is the oldest form of electricity generation technology. In use in some form for more than a hundred years, it provides 20% of the electricity worldwide.   

For investors, the availability of the hydropower plant and systems must be secured to ensure the expected yield delivery. For operators, this means implementing strict preventative maintenance measures. In addition, occupational health and safety and environmental protection needs to be considered.

TÜV SÜD provides a comprehensive suite of consulting and support services for hydropower investors, parts manufacturers and plant operators. Our services are designed to ensure maximum yield, optimum operational efficiency and reduced cost through maintenance downtime.
