Rukarara II power plant, Africa

Rukarara power plant uses the water from two rivers; the Rukarara and the Rubyiro. The penstocks of both rivers are brought together and then separated again ahead of the Francis turbine inlets. The turbine set is directly coupled with two AEM synchronous generators. There was a worldwide invitation to tender for the hydropower project. The construction of the power plant was financed by the EU, Belgium and Rwanda, and executed by a company from Upper Palatinate. In order to feed the output into the local medium-voltage network, specialists worked in collaboration with up to 800 local employees using AEM’s own machines.
