GE introduces new synchronous generators for small hydropower applications

GE has introduced new synchronous hydro generators for horizontal and vertical hydro-turbine applications in the 2,000 to 37,500 kVA range, the company reported.

Each machine is designed, manufactured and tested at a GE factory before shipment for installation in the field, reducing installation and commissioning time, a press release states.

"Our synchronous hydro generators are specifically designed in response to the growing demand of small hydro plants," said Nimesh Sharan, GE Motor product line manager. "These units incorporate a full range of features to address the applications and rugged operational conditions demanded by users in the industry."

GE's synchronous hydro generators deliver compact construction and small foundation, a press release states.

Modular construction provides fast and easy site installation, and units can be shipped assembled or disassembled based upon customer preference and product size, GE said.

In other news, GE Energy recently entered into an agreement to acquire approximately 90 percent of Converteam, a leading provider of electrification and automation equipment and systems.
