Voith Hydro ships distributors, stators to AMP's Smithland hydroelectric project

Smithland Hydropower Project

Voith Hydro's manufacturing plant in Hannibal, Ohio, has made a shipment of three stators and three distributors to American Municipal Power's 72-MW Smithland hydroelectric project in Kentucky.

The global supplier has previously provided equipment for AMP's other Ohio River projects, including the 88-MW Cannelton and 105-MW Meldahl in Kentucky and 44-MW Willow Island in West Virginia.

Voith's shipment to Smithland is the last it will make for the Ohio River projects, which, when taken together, the company said, represents the largest new hydropower development undertaken in the United States in recent years.

"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," Voith Hydro President and CEO Kevin Frank said.

The stators were manufactured entirely in Hannibal, while the distributors were assembled in Hannibal with parts manufactured at Voith's facility in York, Pa. The equipment was then shipped by barge to Smithland.

"Voith Hydro is proud to continue to play a manufacturing role in providing the sustainable energy that spurs economic development and supports jobs in communities across the U.S.," Frank said.
