Hydro Survey Limited specialise in the study, design and implementation of run-of-river hydropower projects in the United Kingdom.
With experience of working on projects from a few kilowatts to many Megawatts, and the understanding that small hydro is not simply large hydro downscaled, we will be able to help you develop a viable project. Hydro Survey Limited staff are active in the wider hydropower world and have been members of numerous panels with UK regulatory bodies. Chris Brett was a member of the board of the British Hydropower Association for many years and Chairman of the Association twice. By following developments in the hydropower world we ensure that our information is, as far as possible, up to the minute and enables us to ensure that your project will comply with the latest regulations. We have also been appointed technical advisers to investment companies and community renewable energy groups.
Hydro Survey Limited is getting back to the roots of hydropower project development, acting as first point of contact and expertise, but working with developers to structure each project to the particular needs of the scheme. While covering all the disciplines of a conventional consultancy, we at HSL work with clients to enable them to manage schemes with greater efficiency and at a reduced cost.
The HSL model
The client’s primary contact is with Hydro Survey Limited, providing in-depth knowledge of hydropower projects and the procedures necessary to implement and build them: the legislative requirements, engineering structures, environmental and ecological consultations, machinery and equipment. But HSL streamlined management, ensuring the client assumes control of contracts and costs.
