Hydropower

Centralized water data management, production, auditing, and powerful analytics help optimize hydropower generation while ensuring operators meet legislated instream flow requirements.

Water is arguably the most precious asset for hydropower producers – so it is not surprising that they go through great lengths to accurately measure water quantity and flow. Errors in hydrological data management and analysis can be costly. Spilled water is a missed opportunity for the production of green, renewable energy. Mistakes with in-stream flow calculations can lead to regulatory penalties.

Today’s hydropower producers are collecting vast amounts of real-time water data. They trust AQUARIUS to improve the timeliness, reliability, and accuracy of their water information assets.
