A transition to sustainable energy systems is underway across the globe. Sweco’s energy experts work across the entire energy supply chain. Focus is on how energy is produced, distributed where it’s needed, and consumed as efficiently as possible. The result is a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable energy supply.
Sweco has worked with hydropower internationally for more than 100 years. We have designed most of Sweden’s countless hydropower plants and are continuously involved in maintenance and upgrading efforts. Sweco combines world-leading expertise with nearly unsurpassed breadth, and we approach all assignments, big and small, with the same high level of commitment.
For many years, Sweco has been focusing on the development of skills and services related to hydropower’s sustainability matters. When upgrading a power station’s electrical and mechanical equipment, the focus is on long-term sustainability. The ecological status of rivers and streams, and the ability of fish to migrate have also become a natural element of many projects. We foresee environmental issues gaining ever more ground in the future, due to the anticipation of new legislation, among other factors.
Our experts manage all aspects of hydropower, from the waterbodies and dams, to the power stations including turbines, generators and control equipment. We also help optimise plant operations and production plans, as well as geotechnical surveys, measurement assignments and sustainability studies.
