Opportunities with Hydropower
Hydropower offers new opportunities for the world.
It is estimated by historians that waterpower was used about 5,000 years ago. In earlier years the mechanical energy was used directly. Today the same energy is transformed into electrical energy with generators. Waterpower plants exist since about 100 years. More than 16% of the total worldwide electricity is generated by hydropower. Hydropower is the most attractive and efficient renewable energy source on the planet.
Population increase, urbanization and increasing energy demands are exhausting the conventional energy sources. Climate change is making people rethink about how to protect our planet and the focus today is on renewable energy sources.
In recent decades, FLOVEL has been delivering highly efficient and cost effective solutions for Hydropower plants, using highly innovative and reliable operating technologies. We have executed more than 245+ hydropower projects around the world, delivering 5,000+ MW hydropower capacity. We are helping shape the future with one of the most efficient and sustainable ways to generate energy: HYDROPOWER.

Small & Medium Hydropower opportunities
Hydropower offers new opportunities for the world. Small & Medium Hydropower plants are a low cost and environment friendly source of electrical energy. An area with large untapped potential, is available in most part of the world. The technology to exploit this potential is well proven and reliable.
- Water is the oldest regenerative energy source and ensures climate stabilization.
- Well engineered technologies ensure reliable functioning and long lifetime.
- The barrages of waterpower plants form living space for human and nature and prevent uncontrolled floods.
Small hydropower has no CO₂ emissions, which would be produced from other energy sources. This is an important contribution to the climate protection.
No resources are wasted and the nature is not polluted with waste products.
Waterpower is an unlimited energy source.
Waterpower plants are noiseless.
