Voith secures contracts in the small hydro segment in South America
For the San Miguel small hydro power plant in Colombia, Voith will supply two turbines with a combined capacity of 45.8 MW, the generators, protection valves, speed governors and voltage regulators, as well as the complete automation system. In addition to the supply, Voith will also be responsible for the erection and commissioning supervision services. The project will contribute to the region's growth and will also be interconnected with the national grid. Furthermore, minimal environmental impact will be caused since the project will be implemented as a run-of-the-river plant with mitigating actions established by the customer.
„Aspects such as technical expertise and reputation in project management, as well as reliability and the suitable solution delivered within the necessary timeframe and trust in our company enabled Voith Hydro to win the contract for the plant, in an extremely competitive business“, states Osvaldo San Martin, President & CEO of Voith Hydro in Brazil.
