Qair’s teams have experience designing, installing and operating a wide range of projects, from run-of-the-river power plants to penstocks of various sizes.
Today, hydroelectricity remains a key part of our diversification strategy. As well as developing greenfield projects, we support customers with repowering or retrofitting existing plants to optimize production and availability. Wherever we work, we use the same tried-and-tested approach, involving local partners from an early stage and designing the plants to minimize their impact on the local ecosystem.
Qair currently operates three major hydroelectric sites in Iceland generating a total of 15 MW, with the ambition of attaining a total installed capacity of 100 MW in Europe. Hydroelectricity remains important for the continued growth of renewable energy and to ensure a varied and complementary energy mix.
