The Sohlstufe Lehen power plant, a run-of-the-river power plant in the northern part of the city of Salzburg, is to be commissioned soon. The two generators with a weight of 37 tons are the core pieces of the new plant.
At the high-head power plants built in this region some 40 to 60 years ago, the shut-off devices are in many cases quite old. So most operators of such plants are now having their shut-off components completely restored.
The long-operating hydropower plant on the Sokolsky peninsula in Budweis, Czech Republic, was renovated, modernized and provided with state-of-the-art hydropower technology in a comprehensive project last year.
The Scientific Committee of Hidroenergia 2014 thanks all applicants for their valuable contributions. All candidates have been invited to present their proposal during the congress sessions.
