The development of renewable energy sources is being driven forward worldwide. Next to wind, solar, geothermal and hydroelectric energy, marine energy is emerging as an increasingly important renewable energy source. This process entails generating energy from marine currents with compact turbine systems.
The Fragant power plant group is located in the Möll valley of the Tauern mountains in Austria and is operated by Kärntner Elek- trizitäts AG (KELAG). It is the company’s core for generating power and a mainstay for safe and reliable power supply in the federal province of Carinthia.
The Dock Sud combined-cycle power plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina is designed to adjust the power generation to the fluctuating electrical demand year-round. Managing the high demand during the summer months is particularly challenging, making the requirement for system component reliability a must.
