• Hydropower plants

Empower the power of water

A hydroelectric power plant has operative life of 30 to 35 years. Normally it needs life extension through renovation after all these years. Due to increased environmental aspects, many of the hydropower plants built in the 1960s and 1970s are becoming obsolete and are in desperate need of concrete replacement/repairs.


Thanks to the stability of our AQUA CUTTER robots, it’s possible to operate directly on slopes. Very steep slopes can be operated with the AQUA SPINE.

Thanks to the tower system on our cutter robots you can remove specific sections on a wall. Just face the wall and remove the concrete by indexing up or down.

Large surfaces can be removed, thanks to our AQUA CUTTER robot’s automation and efficiency. Patchworks like circles, triangles and other geometrical shapes can easily be done with the Evolution control system. You can go down to solid concrete or completely remove all concrete. The rebars remain intact after the operation.

Very steep slopes can be operated with the AQUA SPINE or AQUA FRAME.
