Hydro Energia and the environment

Hydro Power is well known as a renewable energy source for the daily needs of our families and industries, with a very low impact on the environment and wildlife compared with possible alternative sources, both in terms of construction and operation as well for long-term life cycle assessment. This simple concept might be far enough for being proudly part the development of Hydro Power, as a declaration of the highest sensitivity to environmental issues, but… additional steps are becoming mandatory, in modern design and technology, as well for plant management, in order to further reduce any possible environmental impact of the new or refurbished Hydro Power Plants. For this reason HYDRO ENERGIA has been entitled with the Environmental Management Certification System UNI EN ISO 14001, developing its own technologies to reducing any risk of pollution of the water processed by the equipment, avoiding the use of mineral lubricants, minimizing the use of water for auxiliary processes (with the choice of close-circuit cooling systems) and materials and painting fully compliant with the needs of clean water processes, according with the requirements of water intended for human consumptions. While designing our equipment for treating precious water, we are aware that (sooner or later) we will have to drink it.

Quality, a costant source of inspiration

The team of Hydro Energia applies the highest concepts of quality to the equipment and services provided, as a daily investment in their very immediate and obvious returns: highest value for the investors, better long term performance, less operational problems and easiest troubleshooting, and… sleeping sound at night. Would you invest in something of lesser value, if you could choose? The choice of implementing a certified UNI EN ISO 9001 quality management system, for Hydro Energia, came as an easy opportunity following a long-established practice applied since the very first installations.

Our offices and workshops will be open for your representatives, and any technical detail can be explained and discussed with your technicians in order to provide the most satisfying solutions for your needs. To ensure this approach was important and necessary to adopt governance procedures for most of our processes, and a continuous training, review and auditing with our employees, managers and contractors, but this came easy as simple expression of our values.

Our Turbines

Of course the turbines and the water-to-wire technical equipment are the gravity center of Hydro Energia, and everything in the know-how of our staff rotates around them; for this reason our choice has been to give them a dedicated and quite peripheral section. We thought that any first visiting guest to our home should appreciate the comfort of sitting in clean, sustainable and safe lounge, appreciating the quality of the furniture and the hospitality of a reliable and responsible host, before moving deeper into the hard-core technology and what we can do for helping your energy business. Such values as safety, environment, quality and transparency are becoming very sensible topics for most of our partners and customers, and we are feeling the same, therefore we decided to put them under the spotlight, as they are not complementary but necessary attitudes to provide the greatest technology solutions in a strong and reliable business partnership.
