milestone for Litostroj Power Group occurred yesterday, when we loaded the
runner onto the transport for exceptional dimensions. Manufacturing of such
size and type of the runner was a special opportunity for Litostroj Power. More
than 60 workers worked on that runner for more than 7 months. Since this is the
most powerful Francis runner, which we produced in more than 70 years of
tradition, every step of the work was deeply studied before the execution.
Dlouhé Stráně is the hearthstone of the largest single pump turbine unit
currently operated in Europe. It reflects the latest achievement in the
development of hydraulic shapes in Litostroj Power Group.
We are very
proud of our design department and specially workers, who made a lot of effort.
With production of this Francis Runner we confirmed our position at the world
best manufacturers of the hydro turbines.
