Hydropower Engineering

The expan­si­on of hydro­power as a reli­able, sus­tainab­le and long-term cost effi­ci­ent source of ener­gy is expe­ri­en­cing a renais­sance in many regi­ons. ILF actively hel­ps shape this expan­si­on by mana­ging cus­to­mi­zed pro­jects of any type and size. In the last 35 years ILF has suc­cess­ful­ly plan­ned and desi­gned 130 hydro­power pro­jects with capa­ci­ties of up to 1,400 MW around the world. As a one-stop shop ILF pro­vi­des inte­gra­ted, inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry ser­vices for hydro­power pro­jects from the initi­al stu­dy, through the design and ten­der pha­se to com­mis­sio­ning and start-up. Empha­sis is always pla­ced on deve­lo­ping indi­vi­du­al solu­ti­ons that meet the most strin­gent qua­li­ty stan­dards and take com­plex frame­work con­di­ti­ons into account.

To opti­mi­ze pro­jects in terms of eco­no­mic effi­ci­en­cy, ILF also uses uni­que spe­cial soft­ware (such as REN­Risk) and per­forms finan­cial ana­ly­ses. The ear­ly inte­gra­ti­on of all rele­vant sta­ke­hol­ders to incre­a­se a project’s accep­t­ance and likeli­hood of appro­val, and the dili­gent pre­pa­ra­ti­on of Envi­ron­men­tal and Social Impact Assess­ments in line with inter­na­tio­nal stan­dards (e.g. IFC, equa­tor princi­ples) com­ple­ment ILF’s ran­ge of ser­vices. Among ILF’s cli­ents are public insti­tu­ti­ons, pri­va­te pro­ject deve­lo­pers, renow­ned con­struc­tion com­pa­nies, and inter­na­tio­nal finan­cial institutions.

ILF ren­ders all ser­vices requi­red to suc­cess­ful­ly imple­ment hydro­power engi­nee­ring pro­jects. The­se ser­vices include:
