        Highlight projects

          Voith Hydro has unparalleled experience in the modernization and uprate of existing hydroelectric facilities across the United States.

          Bath County

          Bath County Pumped Storage Station: Jointly owned by Dominion Energy and First Energy, the Bath County Pumped Storage Station in Virginia is the world’s largest pumped storage power plant with a generation capacity of over 3,000 MW. Allis Chalmers, which Voith acquired in the 1980s, engineered the original 379 MW turbines for the Bath County Pumped Storage Station in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In the 2000s, Voith Hydro modernized and uprated Bath County’s turbines, which gives each a maximum generating capacity of 530 MW. The massive turbines – each impeller is approximately six (6) meters diameter and weighs ~90 tons – were shipped from York (almost 250 miles away) on a 19-axle truck. With the modernization, Bath County reclaimed its position as the "largest battery in the world."

          Jocassee

          Jocassee Pumped Storage Station: The Jocassee Hydro station is located in South Carolina and is owned by Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC. Allis Chalmers, which Voith acquired in the 1980s, engineered the original 193 MW turbines in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In the 2000s, Voith Hydro modernized the turbine equipment, which gives each a maximum unit generating capacity of 205 MW. The massive turbines - each impeller is approximately seven (7) meters diameter and weighs ~150 tons - were shipped from York (almost 600 miles) on a 20-axle truck.

          Conowingo

          Voith Hydro provided new stator frames, core, winding and cooling system as well as rotor pole rehabilitation on units 9-11 at the Conowingo powerhouse for Exelon Generation Company, LLC. The field assembly and installation were also performed by Voith Hydro. As part of this outage, the generator rating was increased to 75MVA at a Power Factor of 0.95. The contract took place between February 2009 and December 2012. All units have been operating successfully since project completion.
