Multiconsult has extensive experience with planning, designing, reviewing, and rebuilding dams and dam foundations, as well as high-pressure water tunnels and large caverns for hydropower generation. Our past projects include dams of all sizes ranging from standard gravity & embankment dams to double-curvature arch dams that use wooden/aluminium sheet piling. We also have extensive experience with large underground caverns and high-pressure water tunnels, such as Lower Kihansi project in Tanzania (846 m head) and Neelum Jhelum in Pakistan (420 m head).
The services that we offer consist of:
- Concept studies
- Feasibility studies
- Technical plans
- Tender documents and detailed design
- Site follow-up on construction site
- Independent controls
- Reassessment and rehabilitations
- Expert tasks
We have specialists in all relevant disciplines for hydroelectric projects including environmental engineering, landscape architecture and economics, as well as Norway’s industry-leading experts in geology/geotechnics and concrete design. The various disciplines within Multiconsult work closely together to come up with the best dam design from an overall perspective.
In addition, we are industry leaders in our use of 3D visualisation for project planning, as well as finite element method calculations during the design process.
