Infrastructure Development and Turbine Building

by Michael E. Bowler, Axel Johnson Engineering Corp, Seattle, WA, USA,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '85

Abstract: Aggressive development schedules which characterize many projects imply a degree of construction management know-how or alternatively, may say something about the state of the industry on the supplier side. Construction management techniques applicable to the manufacture of Axel Johnson turbines are described, and specified as an example of applied information technology. Likewise, examples of other applications of information technology to small scale waterpower are given, and it is argued that such technology can significantly enhance the viability of the alternative energy industry, and of the process of infrastructure development in general.
