Voith Hydro has shipped three stators and three distributors from its Ohio plant to the Smithland Hydroelectric Project in Kentucky, continuing its manufacturing role in American Municipal Power's (AMP) Ohio River projects.
Stators and distributors are major components of the generators that will be used to provide power.
"The shipment of stators and distributors to the Smithland Hydroelectric Project is another exciting development in a project that will soon bring thousands of households and businesses clean and affordable hydroelectric power," said Voith Hydro President and CEO Kevin Frank.
Upon completion, the Smithland project will provide 72-MW of power to participating members. Smithland is the last of the four Ohio River plants to receive this shipment from Voith Hydro.
Previously Voith supplied its stators and distributors to the Cannelton and Meldahl projects in Kentucky and Willow Island in West Virginia.
AMP's hydro projects will add more than 300-MW of renewable power.
