Voith – Global player on the energy market
Energy efficiency in the face of climate
Worldwide, a quarter of all electricity generated by hydro power is produced with technologies and services from Voith. In power stations all over the world, components and services from Voith ensure regular energy supplies.
Economic prosperity, social development and everyday life are based on secure and affordable power supplies. Worldwide, the trend towards the utilization of renewable and climate-friendly energy sources is accelerating, as the fight against climate change and diminishing fossil fuel resources intensifies. As a supplier of technologies and services for converting primary energy carriers into electricity, Voith plays a leading role in the energy market. International power station manufacturers and operators rely on the experience and the expertise of Voith engineers.
From Heidenheim to the Niagara Falls
In the energy segment, Voith can look back on a long tradition: the first Voith Francis turbine was built in 1873 for the Heidenheim textile manufacturer Plouquet. This was followed by the first major international project: twelve turbines for the hydro power station at the Niagara Falls. (1903-1910). In 1910 Voith delivered turbines for the first Chinese hydro power plant at Shi Long Ba.
Today, Voith develops innovative turbines, generators and automation technology for hydropower stations, among them large and small hydropower plants and pumped storage plants. In addition, Voith components and Voith service concepts at central points in different types of power stations ensure reliable and safe energy supplies for people and industries.
Oil & gas
Efficient technologies for reliable raw material supplies
Products and services from Voith in operation
Oil and gas play a key role in the world of the 21st century. Reliable supplies of these raw materials are a prerequisite for economic prosperity.
Oil and gas play a key role in the production of petrochemical goods and in power generation. They are a prerequisite for economic prosperity. Voith offers reliable and efficient technologies and services to the oil and gas industry for extracting, transporting and processing these raw materials. The Group thus makes an important contribution to the reliable supply of oil and gas to national economies all over the world.
Operating in all regions of the world
Everywhere in the world, technologies from Voith support the production of oil and gas - often under very hard and adverse conditions. When these essential raw materials are extracted and processed factors such as plant availability, safety and robustness are vitally important. The demands on the applied technologies - for example on drilling platforms or on gas fields - are enormous. Apart from Voith components, Voith service specialists with their know-how are also your first point of contact whenever services for refineries and the petrochemical industry are required. Quality, reliability and experience are what really counts here. In Voith, our customers have found a solid partner.
A pioneer in paper making
Newspaper or kitchen roll - the world's paper mills produce on Voith machines
A world without paper? Unthinkable. Paper is an information carrier, an educational medium, a practical packaging material and an element of personal hygiene. Voith offers its customers technologies and services for the entire paper production process.
From newsprint and magazine paper to the production of tissue, which is used in everyday life as toilet paper, cosmetic wipe or kitchen roll - technologies from Voith are used in all sectors of the paper industry. In addition, the experts from Voith Paper look after the maintenance of all relevant machines.
A large share of the global paper production is performed on Voith machines
Paper making has a long tradition at Voith. As early as 1859, Johann Matthäus Voith built the first wood grinder for the production of paper from wood fiber. Today, a large proportion of the world's paper production is performed on Voith paper machines. Technologies for efficient and resource-sparing manufacturing methods are taking up an increasingly important role.
New processes for resource-sparing paper production
As technology leader, Voith focuses on less energy consumption, less fiber usage and more flexibility in operation to fulfill industry demands. Voith therefore offers its customers state-of-the-art technologies for cost-effective and resource-sparing production of, amongst others, hygienic paper. In cooperation with colleagues from Ravensburg in Germany, the employees at the Voith Paper Center of Competence in São Paulo, Brazil, have developed the so-called ATMOS technology for the production of premium tissue paper from 100% recycled fiber.
Reliable at all times
Voith technologies help to extract and transport important raw materials
At first glance, they often go unnoticed, but couplings, gearboxes and many other Voith components are in non-stop operation in conveyor systems all over the world. Above and below ground, they contribute to the constant availability of raw materials such as coal, copper, nickel, etc., for industrial processes.
Be it universal joint shafts and hydraulic presses for steel mills, or hydro-mechanical turbo couplings for conveyor belts in open-cast mining - steel and mining companies traditionally rely on the specialists from Voith. In these industries, machines have to be particularly reliable and efficient. With their wealth of experience, Voith engineers develop and produce components and machines that set universal benchmarks for quality.
A large percentage of machinery produced by Voith operates in Asia
The Voith portfolio covers a wide range of technologies, in order to produce, transport and process raw materials such as coal, copper, steel and nickel. The market for these technologies is growing continuously. Ever increasing energy requirements call for more and more coal. But especially in emerging markets industrial production is continually rising - and therefore also the need for raw materials. In Asia, the demand is especially huge: nearly half of all plants produced by Voith for the raw materials industry are operating on the Asian continent.
Transport & automotive
Mobil, innovative and eco-friendly
Voith sets standards in transport & automotive
Worldwide, more and more goods are being transported, more and more people travel or commute to their workplace. Metropolises rely on intelligent public transport systems, long-distance haulage routes connect the world. Voith supports these developments with innovative and sustainable solutions.
Voith is one of the leading suppliers of mobility technologies and services in the transport and automotive market. We develop reliable, resource-sparing, low-emission products and therefore make an important contribution to safety, efficiency and climate-friendliness. Voith service specialists work for all major automobile manufacturers and ensure smooth, efficient and cost-saving production processes with modern service concepts.
Mobility for people
Voith has been meeting the growing challenges of public and long-distance transport with innovative solutions for many years. Be it final drives or cooling systems and frontends for high-speed trains or automatic transmissions for citybuses - all over the world, Voith technologies make sure that people stay mobile. Especially in megacities such as Shanghai or São Paulo, Voith technologies in metro systems and citybuses make a vital contribution towards safe mobility.
But Voith technologies and services also move traffic on the waters and in the air, for example with propulsion and control systems for ships, with Voith Water Tractors and with engineering services for the aviation industry.
Ideas for the drives of tomorrow
Voith engineers are always looking for opportunities to make transport systems even more eco-friendly. Hybrid drives are among the key technologies in the search for lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions. The experiences and results gained by Voith engineers in recent years during their work on hybrid drives for citybuses are now also used in other areas, for example for the development of hybrid solutions for new, low-emission rail vehicle drive systems.
