Clean energy needs clean inlets
Hydropower plants are a vital part of the energy transition. With a world hungry for more green power, hydropower dams are the focus of attention. To ensure operational reliability, turbine inlets need to be continuously cleared of sedimentation.
Removing sedimentation continuously
The question why hydropower dam reservoirs need continuous dredging is easily answered. As a hydropower dam blocks the flow of a river or stream, the sediment transport of this waterway is obstructed. As a result, this sediment will accumulate in the reservoir, usually against the hydropower dam initially. The turbine inlets will clog, resulting in a suboptimal use of the energy plant. That is where the deep dredgers come in.
