Hydro-Electric Power

Hydro-electric power plants capture the energy released by water falling through a vertical distance and transforms this energy into electricity. In general, the falling water is channeled through a turbine which converts the water's energy into mechanical power. CFM/VR-TESCO, LLC has developed a range of mechanical technology and custom tooling over the years that enables us to meet the unique specifications and service requirements of each power plant in today's hydro-electric industry.
