More than 1 in every 5 hydropower operators indicated that they have either a weak knowledge-transfer system or no transfer system at all.* Knowledge transfer, training, and education programs are necessary to meet future hydropower industry workforce needs – triggered either by attrition or potential growth. But, these programs can be difficult to find. That’s why HYDROVISION International is bringing training to the industry. Hydro Discovery Day is for those workers on the job who need a “jump start” or an accelerator in training.

This 8-hour training takes a “deep dive” into generators. Upon completion, participants will walk away with a basic understanding of the various aspects of the design and maintenance of hydrogenerator and pumped storage motor/generator units. Topics include both electrical and mechanical issues unique to these salient pole machines.
Experienced instructors will discuss current operational issues that can have an adverse impact on the life of a machine and the various tools available to help keep a unit in the best of health throughout its life cycle.
