COST-EFFECTIVE ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION

REINHAUSEN solutions for conventional hydroelectric power plants


HIGH PRODUCTIVITY WITH INCREASING DEMANDS FOR GRID FEED-IN

Run-of-river, storage, and pump storage power plants use the potential energy of water to generate electricity. Depending on power plant type, they provide base or peak load. Hydroelectric power plants operate for long periods and need durable, reliable equipment. As the renewable energy sector grows, the conditions for electricity feed-in are changing and economical solutions for retaining line voltage quality are gaining in importance. Continuous maximum generator utilization ensures productive operation. The tap changers and off-circuit tap-changers in transformers need to withstand high switching capacity levels. Minimum amounts of maintenance are an important financial factor for power plants away from large population centers.

RELIABLE PRODUCTS FOR ECONOMICALLY GENERATING ELECTRICITY IN THE LONG TERM

REINHAUSEN helps you to generate and supply electricity from water power with high levels of productivity in the long term. Our on-load tap-changers and off-circuit tap-changers control all transformers in the hydroelectric plant with the very high level of reliability you would expect. Our oil technology also works in step-up transformers in the limit power range. Vacuum tap-changers from MR perform 300,000 tap-changes without maintenance for decades of maintenance-free operation. Our measurement technology withstands the toughest of ambient conditions. Monitoring systems from MR help you to demonstrably avoid possible outages. Solutions from MR Power Quality are especially suited to assisting operators of small hydroelectric power plants to comply with grid guidelines. And it goes without saying that our global service is always available.
