ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest provide the entire set of services and products needed to commit with a successful project in the global market.
A detailed site assessment is always required before the tidal power array can be planned. Important parameters are water depth, current velocity, bathymetry, profile and flow directions, wave and turbulence impact, grid connection, and environmental aspects. Assessments are undertaken between the customer, ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest and any required third party, defining the basic parameters for the future project including, for example, layout and cost evaluation
Engineering and pre-design
Well-proven project management methodologies combined with a project oriented approach are the basis for optimal tidal power solutions. ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest is capable of applying all of the required knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to meet customers’ expectations thanks to the highly qualified and experienced engineers and project developers, working in close cooperation to develop the best solution for each specific site.
Project execution and implementation
In the continuous quest to achieve customer satisfaction, the quality of service provided is equally as important as the quality of the product. Therefore a global presence and the cooperation with strong partners enable ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest to provide professional solutions that ultimately satisfy every requirement of the customer. Systematic project management guarantees the fulfillment of quality, cost and timeline requirements.
ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest offers comprehensive and tailor-made service and maintenance programs for its products. The turbines incorporate a condition monitoring system to provide a predictive maintenance capability. This avoids costly unplanned repair activities and potentially extends the planned maintenance intervals beyond that predicted. ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest’s global structure and organization, as well as international partnerships enable to undertake service and maintenance activities in close proximity to the sites, minimizing not only the potential downtime periods, but also associated costs.
- It is a 1000kW tidal turbine, capable of working in a depth between 35-100 meters with a production cap. over 3,1 GW per year, operating on a nominal speed of 5-10 rpm. The turbine height is 32,5 meters and rotor diameter of 21 meters. The rotor type consist on 3 open bladed with a swept area of 300-500m2.
