Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any interruptions. Ultrasonic flow meters, flow sensors and clamp-on flow meters (OR clamp-on technology) are ideal for accurate flow metering and flow monitoring.
