• Ontario Power Generation signs Voith for refurbishment of Decew Falls 1;
• Revitalizing generation capacities for the 21st century;
• Milestone in history: one of the first North American projects Voith supplied turbines for.

Operator Ontario Power Generation is overhauling the plant that has been supplying electricity to the grid for more than a century. Voith will supply the turbine runner, shaft, and wicket gates of Unit #8. The overhaul will be complete in early 2012.

"Refurbishing Decew Falls means restoring valuable capacities for electricity generation from renewable energy sources for the 21st century. Service and refurbishment are a fundamental part of our portfolio and in strong demand by power plant operators. In times of rising energy demand we can make a significant contribution to the security of supply by refurbishing plants", says Dr. Roland Muench, CEO of Voith Hydro Holding.

Amongst the first turbines Voith supplied to North America
Voith also had been the original equipment supplier for Decew Falls 1. Early in the 20th century, the owner, Hamilton Cataract Power Company, ordered four turbine units in Heidenheim for the plant located in direct vicinity to the Niagara falls. With delivery from 1904 to 1912, these units were amongst the first ones Voith supplied to North America.

Voith Hydro (voithhydro.com) is a Group Division of Voith and - with a workforce of currently almost 5,200 employees and an order intake of around 970 million 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 in sales, operates in about 50 countries around the world and is today one of the biggest family-owned companies in Europe.
