Turbine rehab sought for 73.6-MW Sackingen in Germany

Germany’s Rheinkraftwerk Sackingen AG seeks bids for refurbishment of four turbines of the 73.6-MW Sackingen hydroelectric project on the Rhine River. Bids are due October 30, 2009.

The hydro operator seeks disassembly and complete refurbishment of the four 18.4-MW turbines, each a Kaplan unit of 7.4 meters in diameter. Work includes renewal of all wearing parts, machine automation, governors, static excitation, and protection equipment. The work does not include generators, Rheinkraftwerk Sackingen said.

One unit per year is to be renovated from October 2011 through August 2015.

The Sackingen run-of-river plant is one of several undergoing rehabilitation in the Rhine system. Schluchseewerk AG awarded a contract in 2007 to Voith Siemens Hydro Power Generation to refurbish a motor-generator at the 910-MW Hotzenwald/Hornbergstufe Wehr plant in the Hotzenwald pumped-storage complex (HydroWorld 8/20/08) and another contract in 2006 to VA Tech Hydro to refurbish a motor-generator at the 1,350-MW Hotzenwald/Unterstufe Sackingen pumped-storage project.
