        Voith Hydro

        For more than 140 years, hydropower plants all over the world have been fitted with components from Voith Hydro. As a full-line supplier for hydropower plant equipment, Voith Hydro is one of the world's leading manufacturers in this field. This applies to traditional hydropower.

        Full-line Supplier for Hydropower Plant Equipment

        With its product and service portfolio, Voith Hydro covers the entire life cycle and all components of large and small hydropower plants: from generators, turbines, pumps, electrical and mechanical power plant equipment and automation systems such as measuring, control and command systems, to services including spare parts deliveries and maintenance work.

        Your requirements. Our services.

        Service

        Regular inspections, maintenance and, if required, repairs are essential to make sure that hydropower plants produce electricity continuously and reliably.

        With the life cycle service concept we offer a comprehensive service package that ensures the functionality and efficient operation of plants across their entire life cycle.

        Automation

        We develop automation concepts that are individually tailored to each hydro power plant, ensuring reliable and economical operation of hydro power stations. 

        Modernization

        In an age of growing energy demands, the modernization of existing hydro power plants makes an essential contribution to securing energy supplies. Modernization projects can achieve significant increases in output and thus higher energy yields.

        Small Hydro

        Small hydro plants play an important part in generating power from renewable energies. With an installed output of up to 30 megawatt they are used in all places where natural conditions or existing infrastructures allow such a project.

        Pumped storage plants

        Pumped storage power plants pave the way for the further development of renewable energies. Voith Hydro has more than 100 years of experience with pumped storage power plants and delivers equipment for the most advanced and efficient plants in the world.

        Large Hydro

        Large hydro power stations are the world's most efficient source of renewable energy. They provide energy for growth regions such as Brazil, China and India and have also ensured reliable power supplies in developed countries for many decades. They make sure that millions of people get light and heating.

        Driven by Experience

        Large, long-term projects which are Voith Hydro's daily business require a sure and experienced management.

        Hydropower industry solutions

        Certificates & Quality Marks

        All of our worldwide locations are certified to international standards for quality (ISO 9001), environmental protection (ISO 14001) as well as industrial health and safety (OHSAS 18001).

        Integrated Management System: Voith Hydro has introduced an internal management system to ensure that quality standards and certificate are worldwide identical for all units.

        Voith Paper

        Partner and pioneer in the paper industry

        Together for sustained success

        Paper manufacturers are confronted by many challenges. Continuously rising operating costs have a negative impact on the productivity of their plants. Increasing energy costs and higher prices for fresh water are further problem factors. In addition, a keenly contested market for wood fiber and waste puts a question mark on the future availability of raw materials.

        As technological leaders we continuously develop new products and services to support our customers in managing these challenges. With our resource-sparing new developments we make a positive contribution to the environment and thus ensure the sustainable success of our customers.
        Voith Paper combines knowledge and experience for highly efficient paper mills, offering top performance in every sector and for every paper grade.

        Stock Preparation

        A large percentage of the costs for fiber, energy and fresh water arise during the stock preparation stage. Consequently, the potential for savings is particularly high in this field. In addition, the stock preparation process has a decisive influence on the paper quality and the operation of the paper machine.

        Voith Paper has the know-how and engineering experience to provide highly advanced technologies for the stock preparation of primary and secondary fibers. We have been offering pioneering solutions for many decades to meet the high requirements of our customers on fiber quality.

        Paper Machines

        High productivity of the paper machine and continuously assured high paper quality are major prerequisites for economical paper production and the smooth further processing of the paper. In order to ensure both, we regard all process stages of the paper machine as an entity. Resource-saving and efficient production is only possible if all components used within the manufacturing process are technically perfected and if sub-processes are aligned to each other.

        This applies both to new paper machines and to rebuilds of individual sections. Whenever a new paper mill is designed, we take all influencing factors into account right from the start, in order to achieve optimum economic and ecological results.

        Automation

        Voith develops and implements comprehensive automation solutions for the entire paper production process from preparation of the raw material to the end product, perfectly tuned to your requirements. This results in a highly integrated system architecture on a uniform platform. It combines the machine control system, process control system, quality control system, motors and drive control system with a universal and open automation system. Voith Automation solutions make a vital contribution to a continuously high paper quality and productivity of paper production lines.

        Consumables

        Paper machine clothing, press sleeves, rolls and roll covers play an important role in the paper making process. They have a decisive impact on the operation of the machine and are vital for good paper quality. Due to lower wear they contribute to reduced production costs.

        The optimized interaction between clothing, press sleeves, roll and roll cover, including doctoring is therefore one of our priorities. As a result, the productivity of the paper machine and the paper quality can be improved or kept at a permanently high level.

        Services

        It is a continuous challenge to achieve high paper quality throughout the service life of a paper machine and at the same time to ensure high system availability. Especially since ambient and raw material conditions as well as the requirements for paper quality are permanently changing. Preventative maintenance and continuous optimization are thus increasingly gaining in importance.

        Service experts from Voith support our customers in facing this challenge: from product services to optimizations of entire production lines. Voith customers benefit from high service quality, reliable production processes and reduced maintenance costs. With our worldwide network of service locations, we are always close to our customers.

        Environmental Solutions

        The intelligent use of resources like raw materials, water and energy are often as challenging to modern production facilities as the production process itself. Voith Paper provides technologies for the efficient handling of raw materials, the optimal integration of subsystems for water, sludge and rejects, the utilization of residual materials and waste water (effluent) for producing energy as well as the recirculation of clarified effluent.
