Hydropower Plants

The worldwide increase in energy demand and the consumption of fossil fuel, together with the ensuing environmental problems, give new impetus to the production of electricity from hydropower, and thus to the use of renewable energy resources as an environmentally friendly form of power generation.

Dams are constructed for power generation, irrigation and drinking water purposes and flood retention schemes.

River interventions are determined by the intended purpose, the possible construction options, the ecological conditions and the economic efficiency.
