Integrated hydroelectric power products, systems and services

We have many years of experience from supplies of "water-to-wire" solutions. In addition, we have unique planning and designing knowhow about complete electromechanical system solutions for hydropower plants. We deliver all types of units in any size.

Our turbines are very competitive due to customized hydraulic design combined with standardized mechanical construction.
A carefully designed solution is vital for the delivery of complete stations. The whole range from batteries to main shut-off valves must be carefully planned and correctly manufactured in order to maintain the safety of the station in any situation. For the sake of the overall solution, it is of utmost importance to focus on the details.

We focus on rehabilitation and upgrading of existing turbines, as well as new turbines for small and medium-sized power stations.

We cooperate closely with other Voith Hydro units, primarily in Austria and Germany, for contracts in the Norwegian market. In 2010, a new workshop for the production of turbine runners for the European market was established in St. Pölten in Austria.
