Sediment Management from Space
HYPOS is a new toolbox for efficient sediment management in the hydropower industry. For offering a wholistic view on (hydropower and drinking water) reservoirs, the smart online solution combines satellite with modelling and in situ data. Within few mouse clicks, it allows to efficiently manage one of the key cost drivers in waterpower: sedimentation.
After the successful finalization of this EU co-funded project the commercial leaflet has now been launched. It includes
📍 an introduction to the HYPOS concept
📍 two factsheets for hydropower design and operation
📍 description of the key products of the tool, such as Chlorophyll a, turbidity, harmful algae blooms (HAB), or surface temperature.
📍 as well as an overview of the satellite sensors
📍 and the modelling data used.
From now on, HYPOS will be marketed by EOMAP’s water quality team. Please get in touch for a free trial account.
💡 Hydropower stakeholders benefit from satellite-based and hydrological information by significant information gain and decision support. The HYPOS toolbox is highly relevant for dam design and operation processes.
