We understand with world population growth and technology advancement, more and more people are becoming dependent on the use of electricity for daily living. For that reason Hydropower projects are in an increase demand. Hydroelectricity eliminates the gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion including pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, dust, and mercury in coal. Hydroelectricity also avoids the hazards of coal mining and the indirect health effects of coal emissions.
At Headway we work with a team of experts that can provide consultation, including environmental and social studies for hydropower projects in order to develop the best solutions for our clients. Our team breaks down hydroelectric development projects into four main phases: planning, draft design (including government permitting), construction and operation.
Some of our capabilities are as follows:
- Aquatic Habitat Mapping
- Endangered Species Surveys
- Environmental Assessments
- Environmental Impact Statements
- Fisheries Studies
- Hydropower Licensing and Compliance Ecological and Engineering Studies
- Sediment and Erosion Control Studies
- Wetland Delineation
