Extending the life of Ireland’s only pumped storage station with a structural digital twin, co-hosted with ESB
- How Ireland’s only pump storage hydropower plant, Turlough Hill, maintains 8 kilometres of their reservoir pipelines using Akselos structural digital twin.
- How the Akselos digital twin helps the hydro power plant extrapolate actionable information from sensors for fatigue life calculation.
- How ESB Ireland performs structural analysis on deformations, rock support, and load-impact and gets structural representations from Akselos digital twin for utilities.
MORE ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
In this webinar, hear about the project between ESB Ireland and Akselos on using structural digital twins to determine the original design life of Turlough Hill, Ireland’s only pump storage hydro power plant, using Akselos digital twin.
Learn how digital twin for utilities provide insight on structural analysis on deformations, the load-impact and asset integrity of nearly 8km of underground pipelines. Using data from sensors and non-intrusive inspection techniques, ESB was able to perform finite element structural analysis with Akselos digital twin, resulting in life extension and a clearer understanding of the hydro power plant’s integrity health.
