Hydropower & Dams

Creating solutions lasting generations

We address all aspects of hydropower, dam, lock and navigation work—from pumped storage and the upgrade of existing projects, to feasibility studies, digital twins and new build. Drawing on over 100 years of experience, we work with clients to meet renewable energy goals and improve quality of life, always with the next generation in mind. This proud legacy has fostered a culture of innovation and safety, and an industry leading team who are on-site around the world, delivering work.

I recognise that with every project there are many stakeholders involved—from governmental entities down to individual users of the energy.
