SIMCO’s engineering expertise has been called on by both public and private owners of hydroelectric power stations and wind energy parks throughout North America to implement various concrete service-life measurements and asset management practices. As owners’ needs and assets differ, SIMCO’s assistance on new construction projects and on maintenance and rehabilitation projects will vary depending on the size, yield, age, history, and expected future performance of each structure.
With the use of its sophisticated modeling technologies, SIMCO assists owners and managers in the complete management of the lifecycle of their concrete assets ranging from a single structure to an entire portfolio of structures.
