Efficient Systems are Profitable Systems
Maintaining an efficient hydro scheme means having a profitable hydro scheme.
The efficiency of the scheme pipeline or penstock contributes significantly to the overall system efficiency.
A loss of dynamic head (pressure during operation) as a result of pipeline losses directly affects kW output. Pipelines can be affected by the build up of deposits, commonly peat or silt. Regular pigging or inspection can ensure this doesn't become an issue.
Proterra Energy carries out pigging and pipeline inspections for its customers. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss of for us to visit to see how your system is performing.
