Commissioning of the plant Somesul Rece - Romania

On August 25, 2015 the plant Somesul in Romania was successfully handed over after only a short delivery time of 8 months.

Our new turbine replaces two old existing plants. Challenge was the turbine shall be designed to fit into the narrow existing turbine house.
That is perfect success and looks very good.
