Hydropower Concrete Programme

Many hydropower structures are constructed using concrete. These concrete structures are extremely valuable. In our research, we develop and manage hydropower concrete structures so as to increase safety and reduce production losses.

Our research meets today’s dam safety requirements for the maintenance and management of concrete structures, whilst the goal is to develop new tools, guidelines, descriptions and techniques for the future. In particular, it’s about giving the hydropower industry the ongoing ability to take action at the right time, at the lowest possible cost and the highs possible quality.

The program is ongoing between November 2016 and December 2018, focusing on power plant's external concrete structures. Part of the activity concerns the concrete structures that are situated close to hydropower plants and which are subjected to high dynamic loads during changes in operating modes when the need for regulating power increases
