Located at our Grenoble site, the hydraulic test platform is the only independent hydraulic test rig in France able to perform tests according to the IEC 60193 standard.
Our modern test rig offers flexibility and reduced down time. It can operate in all 4 quadrants with automated operational mode settings. We perform all test operations and mode changing from the control room with automated valves, allowing fast, repeatable tests. Our modular facility can accommodate different vertical shaft runners for various hydraulic models (Francis turbine or Pump-Turbine).
The platform is equipped with high-precision measuring instruments, suitable for both development and acceptance tests. Automated system and supervision software enable rapid performance assessment.
