  • Voith modernizations at 3,444-MW Ilha Solteira nearing completion

    Ilha Solteira Dam

    Voith has begun the final stages in the modernization of the 3,444-MW Ilha Solteira hydropower project, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    The project, owned by Companhia Energetica de Sao Paulo (CESP), is located on the Parana River in Brazil's Sao Paulo state.

    The upgrades will give Ilha Solteira more flexibility in supplying reactive power to Brazil's electrical grid, Voith Hydro said.

    As part of the modernization project, Voith serviced four of the plant's 20 generators, supplied new windings, stator cores, pole coils and one new stator frame, as well as renovating the other three existing frames. The company also renovated rotor poles and supplied a partial discharge detection system.

    HydroWorld.com reported earlier this year that two Voith-produced Kaplan turbine units are now in commercial operation at Ecuador's 42-MW Baba hydropower plant, and that the company is working with Alstom to manufacture what will become Latin America's largest rotor.
