Is simply ‘maintaining’ key assets enough?
Given the critical role pumped hydro storage plays in being a clean, low-cost and renewable energy storage system, is simply maintaining key hydropower equipment (such as Kaplan and Francis turbines) enough? Or should a more rigorous approach be undertaken to intrinsically ‘improve’ the efficiency at pumped storage hydropower plants for the long term?
In the forthcoming issue Belzona’s Chloe Hirst looks at how to improve the efficiency of pumped storage hydropower plants using cold-curing polymeric systems as an alternative repair and protection solution.
