Bently Nevada Condition Monitoring for Renewables
Peace of Mind starts here: Bently Nevada condition monitoring for Hydro
Hydro machines have historically had the lowest cost per MW on the grid. System operators would base load these units, only reducing load or removing the units from service when maintenance was required, the power was not needed, or stream flow conditions dictated. In this base-load mode, a typical hydro machine could operate successfully for over 40 years with only routine scheduled maintenance and minimal condition monitoring.
