The Institutos Lactec have a tradition of more than fifty years of service with reduced-scale models of hydroelectric plants and other hydraulic enterprises. They carry out studies for the evaluation of the hydraulic performance and arrangement of hydroelectric plants, involving tests on reduced-scale models of spillways, water outlets, and river diversion structures.

Check out our services for the sector:

  • Hydraulic studies of hydroelectric utilization on reduced-scale physical models;
  • Conducting of studies for the evaluation of the hydraulic performance and arrangement of hydroelectric plants;
  • Tests of reduced-scale models of spillways, water outlets, and river diversion structures.

Some of the factors which differentiate us in the market include the capacity to conduct volumetric calibration of flow meters; hydraulic circuit capable of supplying a total stable flow of 1500 liters per second, data acquisition systems and electronic signal processing; electronic micropropellers and electromagnetic and acoustic speed meters and ADCP for field measurements.

In research and development, the projects aim at the development of studies of unconventional hydraulic structures, such as stepped spillways, aeration in high-speed flows, labyrinths spillways, spillways with a high degree of choking downstream, lateral spillways, special dissipators of the flaring pier type, and inflatable dams.
