Voith and Enel Green Power (EGP) have signed an umbrella contract for the supply of complete turbine governor modernization services. The deal covers the modernization of EGP’s power plant fleet with new turbine governors across the Americas and Europe.

Part of this framework agreement is the technical alignment on a globally consistent basic product specification that can be adapted locally. In this way, EGP’s respective hydropower plants can use the basic product specification as a foundation and match it to their specific local needs. 

The umbrella contract also provides a secure basis for EGP to plan its modernization investments and ensure that the negotiation lead time can be reduced to a minimum when new equipment is needed at a specific plant.

It is expected that local EGP affiliates in 13 countries will take advantage of the framework agreement where over the next three years there will be a need for modernization of governors.
