Hydropower represents 20% of power generation in France and is essential to the global energy balance, as it is the only solution than can quickly respond to a short-term power increase. The reliability of turbines is essential. Some of them have been in service for over 100 years making maintenance operations even more critical in case of breakdown. To face this issue, EDF needs a centralized solution to monitor 1 100 already existing hydro units and be able to avoid important time of outage in case of severe damage.
Consulted by EDF, MV-x solution has thus been selected for:
local hydropower plant monitoring (vibration + air gap)
remote and centralized supervision
remote and centralized expertise services enabling early fault detection
MV-x all-in-one solution has since become EDF’s choice of reference for hydropower turbines predictive maintenance.
