The Sudanese MDEC electricity company called on Dynae to carry out a vibratory assessment on 5 Francis hydroelectric generators with a capacity of 125 MW each, at the Merowe dam on the Nile.

With its experience in the hydroelectric field, Dynae assessed these vertical generators in order to quantify the prevailing vibrations, determine their cause and their origin. The instrumentation employed was the 32-channel analyser controlled by DynamX software and its special Hydro module.

After this operation, precautionary operating areas were recommended by the Dynae experts, as well as a complete structural study of the rotor. Future work on a next assignment to correct this problem at the source and achieve operation over the machine’s whole range.

The technical and cultural exchange was interesting with the client being fully satisfied with the Dynae's expertise.
