KCB has designed and collaborated on constructing hydroelectric projects globally for over 65 years. Our clients, some of whom have worked with us for decades, have trusted us with the design, development and commissioning of some of the most challenging hydropower facilities in the world. Our engineering design includes civil, mechanical and electrical design for the redevelopment of generating stations. In addition, our mechanical and electrical groups can handle a variety of mine equipment and infrastructure, from flotation cell upgrades to conveyors, control systems and electrical supply.
