The contract is one of the largest contracts for the modernization of a hydro power plant in Brazil, and the largest ever to be undertaken by a single company. The order volume amounts to about €80 million.

"In Brazil, we see an increasing trend towards modernizations in the hydro power business in addition to the continued strong focus on building new facilities", says Dr. Roland Münch, CEO of Voith Hydro Holding in Heidenheim, Germany. After decades of operation, many operating companies are now upgrading their fleets. "This is a trend similar to the one we have seen in other markets like in the United States or Europe – a trend we can address best with our long-term, comprehensive experience with the modernization of hydro power plants", Münch adds. Hydro power is very important in Brazil: In South America’s most important electricity market, more than three-quarter of the electricity needed is based on hydro power.

For the modernization of the Água Vermelha plant Voith Hydro will overhaul the generators and turbines as wells as the associated electromechanical systems. Additionally, many components will be completely renewed. In operation since 1978, Água Vermelha holds six units with a total capacity of 1,396 MW. It is the largest plant owned by the energy company AES Tietê and is operated by the "Operator of the National Electricity System" (ONS).
