Hydro Mechanical Design
Intent Design’s RK Engineers division provides civil and hydro mechanical engineering design services for hydro power projects. We have grown into an internationally recognized design firm of Hydro-Mechanical solutions in dam, irrigation and power projects. We apply innovation and ingenuity in the design of gates, cranes, penstocks and hoists.
We are one of the leading civil and hydro mechanical design firms, delivering resources and immediate customer service about the globe for Hydro-Dam projects.
Our areas of hydro-mechanical design expertise:
- Gates (Cylindrical, Radial, Fixed wheel, Sliding, Sluice)
- Piping / Hydrodynamic sizing
We have performed over 150 hydro-dam projects. A sampling of our hydro mechanical engineering design projects is listed below:
- Design unique cylindrical gate operated by a 70 t capacity hydraulic hoist.
