Climate-Friendly Electricity for 170,000 Households

On 15 September 2011, Rheinfelden hydro power station at the German-Swiss border was reopened in a festive ceremony. After a construction time of almost eight years, the operator Energiedienst AG is now able to generate three times as much hydro electricity from the Rhine with the help of four Voith bulb turbines; production has risen to 600 million kilowatt hours per year. With this output, some 170,000 households can be supplied with climate-friendly electricity.

Voith looks at the project, which was completed ahead of schedule, with great pride: "It has been quite some time that the German market has seen a run-of-river power plant in this magnitude", said Dr. Roland Muench, Chairman of the Management Board of Voith Hydro. "We are particularly proud of the fact that our turbines actually exceed the contractually guaranteed efficiency". Dr. Muench also highlighted that Rheinfelden is a technologically sophisticated project, which only succeeded so well, because all partners cooperated so closely.

With his participation in the opening ceremony Baden-Württemberg's Minister President Winfried Kretschmann joined the ranks of prominent guests at Rheinfelden. Last year, German Chancellor Merkel had already visited the construction site, followed by a tour of Voith's global research center for hydro power technology, the "Brunnenmuehle" in Heidenheim, where the turbines for Rheinfelden were developed.

Hydro power is the biggest and oldest, and at the same time most reliable source of renewable energy generation. All over the world, hydro power makes an essential contribution to economic and social development in industrialized countries as well as fast-growing regions. Moreover, it contributes significantly to climate friendly energy generation. Since the beginnings of hydro power generation, Voith is a leading provider of hydro power technology and pushes its further advancement.

Voith Hydro (voithhydro.com) is a Group Division of Voith and - with a workforce of currently almost 5,200 employees and a sales volume of almost 1.2 billion Euros in the business year 2009/2010 - belongs to the world-wide leading companies for hydro power equipment.

Voith (voith.com) sets standards in the markets energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transportation & automotive. Founded in 1867, Voith employs almost 40,000 people, generates 5.2 billion Euros in sales, operates in about 50 countries around the world and is today one of the biggest family-owned companies in Europe.
