ČKD Blansko as the worldwide manufacturer of water turbines has decided to build up the new testing laboratory after the company transformation to ČKD Blansko Engineering with a joint venture of the foreign company LITOSTROJ Slovenia.
JMA participated in the development of the testing track by the right design of plunger valves that facilitate the wide range of the turbine models loading regarding to variable upstream pressures. Internal technology construction is arranged in two parallel traces and is built up in two stages. The first stage was completed in 2008. After the good experiences with this design and good performance, it was decided to built-up the second testing track in 2011.
This new facility is a dominant monumental building at the north side of Blansko town. This project is significant by the customers satisfaction of VAG technical solutions and good engineering work with proper design of control valves resulting to the repeating of the identical scope of valves for both project stages. Loyalty of a world-known customer is the best reference for VAG. Some of the VAG Added Values were fulfilled again.
