18 kV STATOR IN VPI INSULATION SYSTEM

2. 5. 2017 Končar-Generators and Motors Inc. has won a contract two years ago with Sydkraft Hydropower AB (ex E.ON Vattenkraft Sverige AB) for refurbishment and power increase of generator G2 on HPP Moforsen in Sweden.

The works of refurbishment and power increase on generator G3 from 50 MVA to 64 MVA include new stator and poles’ delivery, disassembly, refurbishment of existing generator parts, assembly, testing and commissioning.
The importance and significance of this contract is considerably high generator voltage of 18 kV which is not as common on generators with power lower than 100 MVA. The first stator for 18 kV voltage has been successfully taken-over by the customer on April 21 and has already been shipped to HPP Moforsen for the start of assembly works.
GIM has concluded with the same customer in 2016., a contract comprised of generator refurbishment on two power plants in Sweden: HPP Storfinnforsen and HPP Turinge which are planned for next year. HPP Storfinnforsen generator is for the same voltage (18,5 kV) which represents a very important reference in future Končar-GIM business.
