Size isn’t everything when it comes to hydropower
Our team works on a full range of hydropower project sizes—and we measure schemes in terms of the impact they have on the communities we serve. It’s more about the legacy a project leaves behind than its size.
As a premier global hydropower consultant, Stantec provides high-quality assistance for all elements of small hydro project development, from conceptual project design and cost estimates to preparation of final designs to construction management services. We are well versed in the regulatory and agency requirements for licensing, permitting, and constructing small hydro plants.
That experience also translates to time- and cost-saving solutions for our clients. Understanding the economics associated with small hydro plants, we can provide cost-effective design solutions as well as knowledge in financing and procurement.
From sizing and selecting power-generating equipment to evaluating transmission and interconnection requirements, from calculating expected energy and developing conceptual powerhouse configurations to preparing cost estimates, our engineers are familiar with all aspects required for the development of small hydro power plants.
Our team has used our long-term, continuous position in the industry to provide hydropower owners and developers with leadership in the assessment of their facilities and confidence in making decisions for utilizing their energy resources to power their communities.
Going small shouldn't break the bankWe understand and appreciate the critical dependence on cost-effective equipment, standardized design, and straightforward construction procedures to make small hydropower efficient and affordable. Our experts have relationships with small hydro manufacturers that help customize assets so our clients’ projects are functional and energy efficient.
