The Power Plant
Two horizontally mounted Francis turbines manufactured in 1919 by world-renowned turbine maker Voith of Heidenheim, Germany.
Turbine I : Maximum capacity of 116.6 cubic feet (3.3 cubic meter) water per second
Turbine II: Maximum capacity of 77.7 cubic feet (2.2 cubic meter) water per second
When both turbines operate at maximum capacity, they generate the equivalent of 177 kW of power at the turbine shafts
Two fly wheels each with a diameter of 108.4 inches (275 cm), weighing 2.8 and 3.6 tons each.
Two asynchronous generators manufactured by Schorsch in 1981
Generator I: 390 Volts, 120 kW, 160 Amp.
Generator II: 390 Volts, 75 kW, 120 Amp.
