Recent focus on renewable and clean energy sources has increased activity in hydroelectric generation. Many small and medium-sized hydroelectric projects are being developed. Larger existing projects are being upgraded and relicensed, while many large new international projects are in planning and development.
NHC offers hydrotechnical studies to assist in designing small to large hydroelectric facilities and proposes measures that reduce potential adverse environmental impacts and improve reservoir management. We use various methods and software for hydrologic, hydraulic, sedimentation, and morphologic studies to support hydroelectric development and generation and reservoir operations. Our physical modelling laboratories offer hydraulic testing and assessment of project components using both fixed- and mobile-boundary models.
