            Bath County

            Voith Hydro

            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."

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.
