17 April 2019

Voith is to equip the Snowy 2.0 pumped storage project in Australia with electrical and mechanical power plant components after signing a contract with the  Future Generation Joint Venture (a JV between Salini Impregilo, Clough and Lane) at the beginning of April. Operator of the plant is Snowy Hydro Ltd.

The order – which follows an almost two year tendering process – includes the supply of six reversible pump turbines, each with a rated output of 333MW, three of which are variable-speed. It also includes six motor generators, the auxiliary systems and the complete power plant automation.

With the six units, Snowy 2.0 will achieve a total output of 2000MW and provide the national electricity market with 175 hours of continuous large-scale storage.
