Research Service Scope
• This study outlines the features and perspectives of the large hydro turbine (LHT) market in Latin America.• Francis, Kaplan, and Pelton technologies are included in this research service.
• The base year for this study is 2012, and the forecast period is from 2013 to 2017.• Market size is provided in terms of revenue and installed capacity. Revenue figures consider the revenue generated from the sale of LHTs by LHT manufacturers according to the actual date of commission.• LHT prices consider the capital cost of a LHT; however, turbine installation and transportation costs are not considered. All prices quoted in the study are in US dollars ($), unless otherwise specified.• This research service analyzes the market share among LHT manufacturers in terms of installed capacity. Installed capacity figures describe the cumulative manufacturer-rated capacity of installed LHTs, which in large Hydro Power Plants (HPPs) equals over 20 MW installed capacity.• The individual segment breakdown provides important segment characteristics including installed capacity and revenue forecast, and competitive factors of the market.
Hydroelectric Power Plants (HPP)
LHTs are utilized by a single consumer, large HPPs. These production facilities feature at least two turbines and over X MW of installed capacity. A conventional HPP is constituted by a series of main components which vary according to the engineering specialization and the amount of electricity generated within the plant. These various components are defined below.
• Civil Works
- Dam: a structure that contains the water, creating a reservoir used as storage. Can be made of compacted soil with a clay nucleus, or concrete. Includes water evacuation systems.
