Yelm Case StudyThe Yelm Hydro Electric Project services the City of Centralia, Washington. The Yelm Hydro Project is located along the pristine Nisqually River. The Yelm Hydroelectric Project is a run-of-the-river hydropower generation facility consisting of a diversion dam on the Nisqually River, an intake structure at the dam, 9.1 miles of diversion […]
In March of 2017, Underwater Acoustics International was called to assist with the response to the Oroville Dam primary and secondary spillway failure incident. The UAI team along with underwater contractor, DRS Marine, performed an investigation of the upstream face of the gated spillway structure and the adjoining reservoir approach to look for any damage or erosion […]
We are now living in a time where robotics and remote sensing, are utilized to unburden human activity from risk exposure and repetitive effort as well as to provide cataloged and characterized information from remote sensing observation, which is used to make better decisions in all aspects of society from medicine to transportation and civil […]
Major industrial facilities from water resource dams to coffee processing and packaging plants all have the need to utilize water as a cooling source for the power sources of the mechanized automation that they use to provide the product that is their reason for existence. Some, such as hydroelectric plants and other types of electricity […]
Large industrial facilities, from utilities producing electricity to manufacturing plants and chemical refineries, all have the need to utilize water for either power generation or as a cooling source for the power sources and machinery of the mechanized automation they use to provide the product that is their reason for existence. Some, such as […]
The advanced age of the Dam infrastructure in the United States and the general lack of attention that this infrastructure has received since beginning operation is requiring a comprehensive examination to provide information for evaluation of critical needs and to develop monitoring plans in order to acquire the analytical information for predictive maintenance. The following […]
