Solutions for
Hydroelectric Generators

Our flow telemetry, gate automation and software solutions are designed to fit your operation to help you meet your generation, regulatory compliance and community engagement objectives.

Major Hydroelectric Generators

rely on Capta Hydro's solutions

The challenge


Reduced flows and increased variability due to climate change,
compliance with new regulations, relations with the community and other water users: these are some of the challenges that hydroelectric generators are facing and that can be solved with our solutions.

Solutions applied

New Run-of-river Hydroelectric Power Plant Project

Context


Greenhouse gas emission reduction targets will require our electricity generation matrix to phase out hydrocarbon-based generation.
emissions will require that our electricity generation matrix gradually eliminate hydrocarbon-based generation. To achieve these goals, hydroelectric generation will continue to be fundamental, contributing close to 50% of clean generation in Chile, even in one of the driest years in history, such as 2021.

Challenge

However, carrying out a new project or continuing to operate an existing one successfully is becoming increasingly challenging, as they must take into account the new reality: a hydrology with a downward and more variable trend, The company’s activities are based on a society with ever-increasing demands for transparency and communication.

Solution

A new run-of-river generation project applied our solutions to meet these challenges.
Radar flow telemetry equipment for adduction channels, gate automation to optimize generation, advisory services for compliance with regulations, software for integration with other users in the basin.
