Because each hydro-electricity plant is different, we design our hydro-generators to take these particularities into account. The turbine-generator set is key to optimizing energy production and its output and reliability are central to ensuring the economic viability of the plant. Owing to its many years of experience in hydro-electric power generation, Jeumont Electric can rapidly propose the best technical and financial solution for both new builds and retrofit operations.
BUSINESS CASE : Cheves power plant for SN Power
This new 168 MW power plant in Cheves, Peru, commissioned in 2015, is located 130 km north of Lima on the Huaura river at a 600 m waterfall.
MISSIONS PERFORMED BY JEUMONT ELECTRIC
Jeumont Electric was chosen by SN Power to construct two vertical axis machines totalling 104 MVA. During the design phase, Jeumont Electric made a scaled-down prototype to optimize the cooling and ventilation losses of the machine, these being crucial to the required output while remaining within the heat tolerances.
