About us

HydroResearch, based in Täby, Sweden was established in 1993 by Sam Johansson. The main goals for the company are to:

  • develop, improve and introduce new methods suitable for dam safety monitoring including monitoring devices and evaluation tools
  • Act as a bridge between industry and researchers both on national and international level
  • provide expert services in dam engineering.

Most of our work is within Sweden and connected to the dams for the hydropower and mining industry, where our experience and products are well known. In this sector we have worked with all the major companies in Sweden such as Vattenfall, Fortum, Statkraft, Skellefteå Kraft, Uniper, Boliden and LKAB.

We have also expertise in hydrogeology and thermal applications within the environment and energy sector, where we for example have worked with SKB. Some work is made for international clients mainly in Finland, Norway (Sira Kvina), Canada (BCHydro, CEATI) and US (USBR).

Our background as researches and consulting offers many possibilities to further development and new ideas. Our main research partners are LTH, SLU and KTH, where our technology and knowledge are added into their research.

We also participate as Swedish representative members in ICOLD, Technical Committee on Dam Surveillance and EUCOLD, European Working Group on Internal Erosion.
