Voith to upgrade Rheinkratwerk Albbruck-Dogern hydropower project

Rheinkraftwerk Albbruck-Dogern

The Rheinkraftwerk Albbruck-Dogern hydroelectric project will soon receive a multi-million dollar modernization from Voith, according to a release from the company's Heidenheim headquarters.

The contract is worth approximately US$32.8 million and will see Voith replace three vertical Kaplan runners at the 80-year old plant.

Voith said the goal of the project is to "ensure another long period of failure-free operation", while also increasing the machinery's efficiency.

The 108 MW hydropower plant is located on the Rhine River and is owned by Rheinkraftwerk Albbruck-Dogern AG (RADAG). Its operational license extends through 2072, making these refurbishments important, Voith said.

HydroWorld.com reported in March that Voith had also signed a deal with Statkraft to modernize six turbines in Norway.
