The contracted scope of work also includes the delivery of two new generators, each with a power of 7 MVA, a speed of 107.14 rpm and a voltage of 5.3 kV, a contactless excitation system of the company KONČAR – Electronics and Informatics, spare parts, special tools and devices used for equipment installation and assembly, commissioning and pre-commissioning.
The special feature of the power plant is that it does not include a crane bridge. Therefore, all equipment will be lowered into the engine room through an opening on its roof by using a mobile crane. Construction work will commence in September 2021. Items pertaining to the first generator are to be taken over at the factory in March 2023, those pertaining to the second one a month later, while the completion of field work for both generators is scheduled for February 2024.
In addition, GIM also contracted the design and delivery of the first of three new replacement generators and associated equipment for HPP Ering-Frauenstein, located on the Inn River on the border between Germany and Austria. The second generator is expected to be ordered at the end of this year.
GIM is also in the process of realizing six other contracts for German and Austrian markets.
