WP Oy is a family owned enterprise specialised in
hydro power turbines and equipment, hydro technical planning and
flood control equipment. The history of the company starts in year
the first pumps and sluice gates were manufactured
for flood control . Soon, in year 1976 fully submerged pumps were
introduced for large volume, low head pumping applications.
WP Oy keeps the engineering and
design skills on high level in continuous development and research
projects. Long experience with
submerged motors and generators ensures high reliability for the
equipment and stainless steel
structure gives service free body structure for the machinery.
To achieve better efficiency for small hydro
the first permanent magnet generators are developed and installed
for WPOY’s hydro turbines.
indication of long-term technical development work WP Oy has lately
received European Innovation Award
for Best Transnational Technology Transfer.
submersible hydro turbine generators were developed and installed
in year 1982. Till today hydro power has became the main business
of the company including plant design, licensing, constructing,
and delivery of the hydro power equipment. Nevertheless pumps and
gates are still in the variety of design and production.
example of working on long-term basis with the universities and research
companies are frequency converter operated hydro turbines. They have
been developed from the beginning of nineties to meet
the demand of economical and mechanically simple construction for
small hydro where a regulation of the flow is needed.
ongoing project low noise turbine generators are developed. Many old
mills and power plants are converted to offices and homes and common
hydro equipment are not acceptable since their sound emission. Solving
the noise problem these plants
can be brought back to production.
is to design and produce innovative solutions for the demand. There
is willingness to solve all the cases, even difficult ones
with the most applicable engineering work and technique fitting into
the existing structures, location
and nature. The goal is well performing and profitable completeness
for the customer.
