One of our reference cases

Bergeforsen Embankment Dam

The Bergeforsen power plant in the river Indalsälven was built in the early 1950’s. However, no seepage measurements have been possible because of a high downstream water level. A complementary installation was made in 2005, where 17 new standpipes were drilled from the downstream berm down to the bedrock in order to measure the temperature in the seepage water. Optical fibres were installed in the new standpipes, in five old standpipes, and also in the upstream water. A Sensornet DTS unit was installed in September 2005, when continuous measurements also started.
