The area of Terni represents an innovative area of hydropower production and technological development at a national and international level.
In fact it is in this area that one of the first efficient wide-scale hydropower distribution networks was designed, produced and implemented (thanks to various industrial processes and to the creation of specific plants). Already at the end of 1800 the first projects were implemented resulting in the construction of the first hydraulic turbines, together with the relative generators and primary and auxiliary equipment for power stations, along with the study of the relative installation and maintenance procedures.
A similar engineering commitment became the first step of the future hydropower industry in Italy and globally.
This culture of designing and manufacturing specific products for the hydropower sector, which is typical of Umbria, is still alive at Italtechnics.
In detail, the company offers several activities:
- Turn-Key solutions for micro&mini HPP
- Designing, production and installation of special HPP accessories
- Production and/or refurbishment of plant parts (turbines, switch assembly, penstocks, power and command panels)
- Electromechanical revamping of existing hydropower stations
- Upgrading of power stations with predictive and proactive solutions with sensor implementation and 4.0 management software
- Service activity
Turn-key solutions for micro and mini hydropower plants
From 50 KW to 20 MW, this is the range within which we propose the most innovative and operative solutions. The characteristics of every plant are thoroughly analysed and supervised with the aim of pinpointing the solution which best interprets the right balance between maxim...
Revamping of existing hydropower plants (also higher than 20 MW)
The revamping of existing hydropower plants consists in the modernization of its electromechanical equipment with reverse engineering aimed at: Increasing efficiency Reducing environmental impact Increasing operation duration Time and maintenance cost reducti...
Production and revision of plant parts (also with power exceeding 20 MW)
Our extremely flexible structure also gives us the possibility of supplying, in a competitive way, single parts of the plant and spare parts in general, completely customised or derived from reverse engineering activities. With the same modalities we also offer the revision o...
4.0 Digital upgrade technology
Process control and management are automated by means of latest-generation sensors and PLCs together with modern SCADA management systems: Remote system management of plant Real-time performance monitoring Predictive maintenance system based upon Real-time data loggi...
Operation & maintenance
We support our customers in every phase of the project: from the initial to the feasibility study, recommending the most valid technical-economical solutions, right up to the final phase after start-up, supporting and training operators in the management and ordinary maintenan...
