Our Underwater Acoustics team offers a breakthrough technology for the inspection of penstocks – a major benefit for dam owners. The technique was developed by industry veteran Ken LaBry, Chief Scientist of Acoustics for Fenstermaker. The procedure not only eliminates the need to dewater, but provides the highest imagery resolution on the market.

Other major considerations are the risks involved with dewatering. The chance of structural failure of the penstock and increased safety hazards for the inspectors.Learn More
