Hydropower Maintenance Expert

Dedicated curriculum for hydropower maintenance experts

    Hydropower plants are complex systems with specialized technology. To achieve a high availability, it is necessary that maintenance tasks be performed duly by qualified staff. This curriculum focuses therefore on the specific training needs of hydropower maintenance experts. It conveys latest know-how of an original equipment manufacturer.

    In three modules, trainees are trained on relevant component know-how, detailed maintenance tasks, concepts as well as trends. After the participation in the curriculum, trainees have a deep knowledge basis to implement state-of-the art hydropower maintenance methods in practice.
