Our experts assist clients to exploit new opportunities in a technically and economically viable, socially acceptable and ecologically compatible way.

ÅF has a broad range of competencies and extensive experience in conducting concept, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for new sites (green field projects), upgrading or rehabilitation of existing large and small hydropower plants in the project assessment process.
