Voith wins two hy­dropower or­ders

Electrical Monitor - - ORDERS & CONTRACTS -

Voith has re­ceived two new or­ders, val­ued at 23 mil­lion euros, to sup­ply the equip­ment for two hy­dropower plants in the Hi­malayas. Th­ese com­prise the com­plete electro­mechan­i­cal equip­ment for three gen­er­at­ing units at the Ra­suwaghadi hy­dropower plant in Nepal as well as the mod­ern­iza­tion of six tur­bine run­ners at the Salal hy­dro­elec­tric project in In­dia.

The two projects will be car­ried out by Voith Hy­dro in In­dia. For the Ra­suwaghadi plant in Nepal, Voith will sup­ply a com­plete wa­ter-to-wire so­lu­tion in­clud­ing three 37-mw ver­ti­cal Fran­cis tur­bines, the gen­er­a­tors as well as au­to­ma­tion sys­tems and bal­ance-of­plant equip­ment.

At the Salal hy­dropower plant op­er­ated by NHPC, lo­cated on the river Chenab in Jammu & Kashmir, Voith will carry out the sup­ply and ser­vice works for in­stal­la­tion of six new run­ners. The re­fur­bish­ment of the run­ners, orig­i­nally in­stalled be­tween 1987 and 1995, be­came nec­es­sary due to ero­sion da­m­ages that have been caused by the silt prone wa­ters of the Hi­malayan rivers. The six run­ners will be man­u­fac­tured at Voith Hy­dro's work­shop in Vado­dara, In­dia, and be de­liv­ered grad­u­ally to re­con­nect the units to the grid step by step.
