Voith has secured a pair of contracts for two South American micro hydroelectric projects, the company announced this week.

The first is a small expansion of Brazil's 372-MW Santo Antonio do Jari hydro project, which will see Voith supply and install a Kaplan S turbine, a generator, automation systems, and all related electrical and mechanical parts. The company said the turnkey installation will add about 3.4 MW of capacity to Santo Antonio do Jari's overall capacity.

Meanwhile, Voith will provide two small hydroelectric generators for a new 45.8 MW run-of-river project in San Miguel, Colombia. Voith said it is responsible for the erection and commissioning supervision services, in addition to supplying the generators, protection valves, speed governors, voltage regulators and automation systems.

HydroWorld.com reported earlier this month that Voith had been selected for work at the 1.42-MW and 226-MW Passo Fundo hydropower projects - both of which are also located in Brazil.
