The team have installed an interface device, enabling secure visibility of operations at their control centre in Perth, Scotland. The remote monitoring and assessment package enables the team to measure and review operations and maintenance performance to ensure the projects operate and deliver their best performance.

The team will use data, advanced analytics, and insight to identify areas of improvement and optimisation to maximise output and value for the project.

Green Highland is also supporting projects in Africa, including large-scale hydropower schemes in Ethiopia. The company is helping local teams to improve the reliability and availability of existing projects and help reduce reliance on Carbon intensive generation.

This support has been made possible by the German overseas development fund and the Green Highland team is also looking forward to working with the UK development funds to ensure UK companies can play a leadership role and deliver a fair transition to Net Zero for all.

“Our extensive experience and knowledge of delivering, operating and maintaining hydropower projects in the UK and Scotland, provides the perfect platform to apply this knowledge in other countries” said Green Highland, CEO Alex Reading. “Hydropower is critical in achieving Net Zero, in the UK and worldwide. It’s the oldest form of electricity generation, delivering low-cost, flexible, and predictable renewable power. As a next step, we would like to work with UK Government to ensure that we continue to unlock this service around the world while creating jobs and investment in the UK.”
