Hydropower turbines are constantly at work converting water energy to electricity and accounting for a large portion of the electricity supply from renewable energy sources. Prolonged usage can cause components to warp or shift over time, decreasing a hydroelectric power station’s overall efficiency.

Portable metrology equipment, such as the FARO® Laser Tracker, can be used for 3D inspection, maintenance, alignment and documentation of towers, turbines and rotor blades, ensuring the station is meeting optimal performance while minimizing outage time.

“The turbine blades in production were 6m wide, and it proved inefficient to continue relying on our old methods,” expressed the operator. “We needed to perform measurements at a tighter tolerance, and at a faster pace.”
