Key Features

Types of dams identified

Sherlock identifies sites for both Run of River (RoR) dams and Storage dams. RoR are selected to optimise natural head: maximum chute with the minimum length. Storage dams are selected to maximise regulation capacity (inflows and reservoir volume), while minimising dam body volume.

Performed with multicriteria analysis

Once sites are identified, Sherlock inspects them with spatial analysis powered by Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology. This leads to the exclusion of some sites and the ranking of those remaining. The multi-criteria ranking extends beyond profitability to include the environmental and social impacts that decision-makers need.

Trusted technology and data

Sherlock is powered by recognised climate datasets, hydrographic networks and advanced 3D modelling technology. Spatial analysis is performed on GIS software using dedicated scripts that measure proximity, distance and more.
