Specialists in hydrological and hydraulic surveys. We provide the best solutions for each type of photovoltaic plant lay-out.
The main objective of hydrological survey is to determine the level of hydrological and hydraulic risk for all types of infrastructure. In particular, GMS Internacional has specialised in the hydrological and hydraulic analysis of photovoltaic plants, wind farms and other urban projects and infrastructure (housing developments, roads, bridges, high-voltage power lines, substations …).
These surveys combine the calculation of the statistical probability of rainfall and flood risk, as well as the application of numerical methods to determine the flood flows, water heights and the erosional velocity of the same. In addition, these surveys include the pre-dimensioning of drainage systems based on hydraulic calculations.
In the initial stages of a project, and based upon the results of the hydrological survey, we propose in-plant drainage networks which facilitate draining and/or channelling off water which has accumulated on the plant site. During the construction phase, we focus on the actual design and construction of the drainage system with gutters, ridges, and overpasses among others (see our section on Hydraulic Engineering).
