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.
