Voith will rehabilitate the turbines in the 10-unit powerhouse located on the Columbia River over the next decade YORK, Pa., Sept.
PORTLAND, Ore., July 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Voith Hydro's first-of-its-kind patented fish friendly hydropower turbines are giving new life to the Bonneville Dam, after more than 70 years of providing clean, renewable energy to the Pacific Northwest. The Bonneville First Powerhouse, which has been harnessing hydropower from the Columbia River since the late 1930s, underwent a $140 million upgrade to its turbines.
A new advanced turbine being tested at Wanapum Dam in Washington state produces nearly 5 percent more power, but before more are installed researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are getting input from several thousand fish.
