Voith is to equip the Braskereidfoss hydroelectric power plant at the Glomma River in South Norway in a $24m deal.

The plant is situated on the country’s widest and longest inland waterway, and the German company will deliver the complete generator-turbine unit with an output of 15.7 MW including all automation systems.

Meanwhile the company has also concluded its extensive contracts for the hydropower stations Sohlstufe Lehen and Pernegg in Austria, which has a capacity to supply 58,000 households.

Pernegg
Sohlstufe Lehen Voith in Sankt Pölten has installed two underground Kaplan-machine sets rated at 7.2 MW each, and the package also includes synchronous generators and electro-mechanical equipment.

Voith has also delivered three new generators to the Pernegg plant, including Kaplan turbines and all associated control systems for the project.

Voith’s work will amount to a considerable modernisation, as the original turbines of the Pernegg hydropower plant date back to 1927.
