'The beauty of hydro schemes is that once they are built, they look after themselves...'
...if only that were true.
A well designed and built hydro scheme should remain operational for anything up to a hundred years and, in theory, your scheme should run with very little intervention. But to get the maximum return it is essential to ensure that all aspects are properly managed -- from the technical performance of the scheme to vital financial, commercial and administrative affairs. That is what we do.
Hunter Hydro offers a comprehensive Operation and Maintenance service to ensure that your scheme continues to perform efficiently while optimising its profitability.
