Current practice in the design of hydro-power plants is to determine empirically the most suitable design in a series of time-consuming experiments. However, SMEs in this sector have to face private and public tenders to sell their turbines in both national and global markets, where the competition is very strong and the development time is very short. The challenge facing Zeco is to improve its design processes by the use of HPC-based high-fidelity simulations of flow in its turbines through the use of CFD-based tools.
