Digitalisation in Hydropower 2024

October 15 | 10:00 October 16 | 15:00

Enhanced digital controls can boost hydropower performance, cut costs, and optimize asset management. These systems aid decision-making and enhance operational efficiency, which is crucial as many hydropower plants require refurbishment and modernization in the coming years. Based on practical examples you will gain insights into how digital solutions are already successfully implemented and applied.

In this context and as a valuable complement to the lectures, on October 16th all participants are invited to visit the storage hydropower plant at Walchensee where uniper will present implemented and currently tested digitalisation techniques as well as the Research Institute of the Technical University of Munich at Obernach.

The imposing storage hydropower station is considered the cradle of industrial power generation in Bavaria. Completed in 1924, it was one of the largest hydroelectric power plants in the world at the time with an output of 124 MW. Down the road in Obernach, the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources at TUM carries out numerous research projects at its satellite Research Institute.

The Expert Event will bring together experts from leading operator and manufacturer companies as well as related stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities for the operation of hydropower fleets accruing from digital transformation.
