Hydro

COSTRONIC, a CMR Group subsidiary, delivers its expertise in automation and electrical engineering to hydroelectric power plant operators.
We have been collaborating for over 30 years with end customers, main design offices and turbine manufacturers to offer our turnkey solutions.

Our value proposition

We develop and execute in turnkey the overall electrical & control system of hydro power plant, with our solutions tailored-made to meet customer needs, and we also support our customers during maintenance & operation phase.

Our control systems portfolio ensures the optimal availibility of the power plant for  daily operation. Our solutions are based on newly developped technical innovations in order to improve your power plant and its operation.

With over 2500 executed projects, we are well reconized as a strong control solution integrator on many diversified sectors such as energy generation and electrical distribution.

Since more than 60 years, we are delivering our competencies and expertise on hydro turbines, generators, electrical protections, control and synchronization systems to serve all our customers

Our Benefits

Our subsidary COSTRONIC has developed a wide range of skills in the field of automation and electrical engineering dedictaed to hydro power plant and propose turnkey solutions customized for each project requirements. 

We operate in the following areas of expertise:
1. IT and industrial networks, supervision systems (SCADA)
2. Automation and control system engineering
3. Process regulation and energy management
4. Electrical engineering (schematic, lists, nomenclatures, ...)
5. Manufacturing and installation of electrical cubicles

These project activities are supplemented by specific skills with high added value:
1. Speed ​​regulation of hydro turbines (Pelton, Francis, Kaplan)
2. Voltage regulation of hydro units
3. Analysis, calculation and setting of electrical protections 
4. Optimization of the hydro power plant thanks to our  control system, the operating sequences and overall management & supervision of the hydro resources
5. Our advanced energy management system to automatically operate one or several hydro power plants taking into account the production forecasting and scheduling.
