Hydro-Generator Services

Sidewinders will work diligently to ensure the success of your project.

Sidewinders offers an extensive range of services to hydro customers in order to ensure overall dependability and quality operation of their equipment. Our hydro-generator tests and inspections or Condition Assessment Program (CAP) is performed by our highly skilled generator specialists and craft labor in order to support a customer’s understanding of the actual and physical and electrical condition of their equipment. Not knowing the condition of the equipment can lead to unscheduled outages, unplanned repair costs, reduced online availability, and ultimately, lost revenue.

Contact us today to get more information about our CAP Program and to receive a CAP brochure, which outlines the levels (1,2,3) of our program and the number of days to provide services.
