Hydro power projects.

Construction of hydro power plants

Construction sites of hydro power projects are often located at very difficultly reachable locations. Machinery and material for surge chambers, shafts, dams and penstocks would need to be carried through specifically built roads or by helicopter. This implicates high efforts in time and financial resources. Furthermore climatic and environmental conditions may complicate the logistics of the construction of hydro power plants significantly.


Cable crane systems as alternative

LCS proved numerously times to be able to provide a working solution for such construction projects.

Heavy load cable crane systems, which carry heavy duties exceeding 20 tons along long distances and steepest slopes, are distinguished alternatives for the logistics of hydro power projects. This way these loads can be carried in a very efficient and safe way even at complicated climatic conditions and unnecessary delays of the plant construction can be avoided.

Penstock construction

LCS applies comprehensive experiences – even from the construction of pipeline – when penstocks are constructed. Large diameter pipes can be easily transported and laid using highly technological crane systems.

Manpower transportation

Using gondolas and following the safety guidelines, the cable crane systems allow the transportation of personnel to the construction site – an additional facilitation of the logistics when construction hydro power plants.
