Intelligent solutions to digitize your hydropower plant
Collecting and structuring data, detecting anomalies, deciding on proper actions and smart workforce and asset management – digital hydropower solutions by Voith enable customers to tread the path towards the digital hydroelectric power plant. Whether it is about taking the very first step in digitizing selected systems in your power plant or seeking support in increasing your plant’s efficiency and availability with intelligent solutions, our experts will assist in making your equipment, assets and workforce ready for the requirements of tomorrow.
Digital hydropower solutions – making plant operation more efficient, transparent and secure
The increasing demand for energy, the use of different energy sources and an advancing digitalization require greater flexibility as well as precise and real-time data from hydropower providers. Today, plants can get networked with the power supply grid, centrally managed, and software algorithms can control many processes on their own. As a result, plant operators face the challenge to meet this growing demand of data handling while at the same time increasing efficiency and reducing operation and maintenance cost. This is where Voith provides intelligent solutions that make plant operation more efficient, transparent and secure.
