Hydro Power

Everything flows: Water becomes electricity
Brute power, used productively: The creation of electricity from hydro power means extreme conditions for mechanical components. Measurements with mobile systems from Leica Geosystems ensure longevity and efficiency of water-power plants.
Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 ensures efficiency of hydroelectric power stations
Vorarlberger Illwerke operates ten hydroelectric power stations in the Montafon alpine valley in Austrian state of Vorarlberg and produces valuable peak-load and regulating energy. The company regularly investigates the efficiency of its turbines so that the power of the water can be converted into electricity as efficiently as possible. The base data for these investigations are created using a laser tracker system from Leica Geosystems. more
