Catalog excerpts

Harnessing the power of water with engineered reliability Generating energy from the power of water represents large amounts of clean, renewable energy. 71 percent of the earth’s surface is covered by water. The world’s hydro power potential amounts to 20 billion Mega Watt hours per year and only 30 percent of this has been developed so far. Hydro power is not only environmentally friendly, but also cost-effective. Hydro power plants have the highest operating efficiency of all known generation systems. They are largely automated, and their operating costs are relatively low. Hydroelectric power...

From the beginning, Kaplan turbine development has always been synonymous with Voith. Cross section of a 9.5 m diameter Kaplan runner for the Yacyretá hydro power plant in Argentina Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to solve and analyze phenomenons that involve fluid flows In 1913, the company was the first to recognize the impor tance of Victor Kaplan’s invention and, in partnership with him, developmental tests were performed in the Voith research laboratory. Since then, thousands of Kaplan turbines have left our manufacturing facilities, among them the world’s largest and most powerful. Our...
