Considered one of the largest Francis wheels ever manufactured in the world, the part is one of the main components supplied for the project. The turbine wheel has the function of transforming the water movement into mechanical movement.

The part weighs approximately 320 tons and has around eight meters diameter and is five meters high, the equivalent to the weight of over 320 small cars. The logistic for transportation to the work site will be multimodal, in around 90 days, with the part being transported over land, sea and river.

“Working on the production of one of the largest Francis wheels in the world is extremely gratifying. Delivering this order within the deadline and according to the client’s expectations makes us even prouder, and allows us to reaffirm our commitment to the delivery of our projects with excellence and quality,” comments Januário Dolores, General Director of Alstom Hydro in Latin America.
