Increased dam safety
New and increased testing to improve safety at dams.
In a bid to increase operational safety, energy company Fortum are taking a new approach to monitoring activity at its hydroelectric production facilities in Sweden. By continuously collecting data on dam performance, they aim for more efficient detection and correction of problems, which will increase dam safety.
ÅF's role is to assess and propose needs-based instrumentation, new processes and routines for evaluating and handling measurement data, as well as related investment needs for instrumentation.
ÅF is also supporting Fortum in producing requirement specifications and implementing a new IT support system for the analysis and visualization of measurement data.
