Increased dam safety
New and increased testing to improve safety at dams.
In a bid to increase operational safety, one energy company is taking a holistic approach to monitoring activity at some of its hydroelectric production facilities in Sweden.
Fortum wants to increase dam safety by continuously collecting data on dam performance. This, they believe, will increase the likelyhood of detecting and correcting problems. 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.
