A renewable energy
Hydroelectric energy, also called hydroelectric power or hydroelectricity, is a form of energy that harnesses the power of water in motion—such as water flowing over a waterfall—to generate electricity.
There are several types of hydroelectric facilities; they are all powered up by the kinetic energy of flowing water as it moves downstream. In addition turbines and generators convert the energy into electricity, which is then fed into the electrical grid to be used in homes, businesses, and industries.

We are your reliable partner for the supply or rehabilitation of equipment in hydroelectric power plants:
We provide the most reliable solutions accompanying our customers to achieve their technological challenges and ensuring the highest quality:
"We trust Acebron Group for the rehabilitation and manufacturing projects in our hydroelectric plants, due to the quality and precision of the parts and equipment they supply, as well as their seriousness and commitment to delivery times. We like to collaborate with companies like them, that have high quality standards but never lose the warmth and the humane touch. They combine the most advanced technology with a high responsibility for the environment and that for us is fundamental. Reliability, responsibility and professionalism are the adjectives that best describe Acebron Group."
Starting from a sample part, we can reverse engineer to manufacture and supply new components. This process is mainly carried out in our O & M section for old parts where there are no manufacturing drawings available and there is no availability in the market.
Although we specialise in the largest components, we have the capacity and means to manufacture practically all the mechanical components of Francis, Pelton and Kaplan turbines as well as other critical equipment for Hydroelectric Power Plants.
We are experts in manufacturing:
+ Guiding vanes
+ Turbine casings
+ Chains and guides
After 20 years working in the sector, we have managed to become the reference partner of the main technologists and utilities in the sector for their manufacturing and rehabilitation projects.
We have participated in important projects for the main Spanish hydroelectric power plants such as the CH de Jose María Oriol, CH de Aldeadavila, CH de Villarino, CH Torrejón, CH Ribarroja, CH Bolarque or CH Flix in which we have supplied or rehabilitated:
Our scope of projects includes:
+ Dismantling and assembly in the workshop and in the plant
+ Drawing up of plans
+ Inspections, NDT, 3D measurements
+ Surface treatment: Cleaning, sandblasting, painting
+ Welding and metal sheet working
Repair of hydroelectric power plants:
Why choose us as a partner for your refurbishments?
We specialise in the following types of repairs and rehabilitations in which we are approved by leading technologists and utilities:
We have all the high-precision measuring tools necessary to guarantee the measurements of machined parts:
In the surface treatment process we have highly qualified and certified FROSIO painters (Norsok 501) and a NACE International inspector (CIP Level 2) to guarantee the highest levels of quality and control.
Our manufacturing processes are certified according to EN1090-1:2009 /A1:2011 and UNE EN ISO 3834-2:2006 and we have a highly qualified engineering and product quality department:
Our 4 factories and all our machining equipment are connected to the production engineering department via industrial communications software.
We can send programs directly from the CAM department to all machines, improving productivity and increasing the reliability of the different processes. Through our virtual machines we are able to generate a simulation of the machining process, thus improving the efficiency, times and quality of our procedures.
We use these programmes and systems to machine complex and large components such as gearbox housings or bushings, ensuring precision and compliance with the necessary tolerances and geometries.
We also make use of Industry 4.0 tools to reverse engineer components through which we can proceed to the creation of new parts from used parts.
