Voith Hydro Shanghai

    The operating unit in Shanghai is Voith Hydro’s largest manufacturing base in the eastern hemisphere with nearly 500 employees.

    It was established in 1994 by Voithand Shanghai Electrical Corporation. Today, Voith Hydro Shanghai (VHS) is a complete full line supplier for hydropower plants. We do not only offer engineering, production, assembly and commissioning, we also provide a life-cycle partnership including maintenance, upgrading, digitalization and modernization. Our portfolio covers the development and manufacturing of a wide variety of turbines and generators. 


      In 1908, the Yunnan-Vietnam Railway made Voith familiar with China and provided generators and turbines for Shilongba Hydropower Station, the first hydropower station in China.

      The station was put into use in 1910 and is still in operation more than a century later. As of today, Voith has provided more than 200 units to nearly 55 hydropower stations in China, with a total installed capacity of over 66 million kilowatts. Voith has supplied turbines and/or generating units to eight of the top ten hydropower plants in China.

          VHEC Shanghai

            Voith Hydro Engineering Center (VHEC) International consists of five centers of excellence in Brunnenmühle, Heidenheim an der Brenz (Germany); São Paulo (Brazil); Vasterås (Sweden); York, Pennsylvania (USA); and Shanghai (China). As the center of main inlet valve competence, VHEC Shanghai performs the system engineering of main inlet valves for the markets of Voith Hydro Shanghai and also for international markets of other operating units in cooperation with VHEC Heidenheim. 


              Voith Hydro Shanghai is located beside the Huangpu River, 700 meters away from its own harbor, which is equipped with a crane capable of lifting up to 600 tons. This ensures that any large turbine and generator components, including the stay ring, head cover, rotor center and stator frame, can be transported by ship, thus significantly reducing the difficulty of transport and increasing time efficiency.
