Marc HEMMEN - General Manager MECAMIDI Brazil:
«In 2007 MECAMIDI opened its Brazilian subsidiary MECAMIDI Brasil in São Paulo. One year later, it took over the control of the former company “Bee Turbinas Wirz Ltda.” successor of the old “H. Wirz & Cia Ltda.”, a factory created in 1922 by European immigrant and which always supplied hydraulic turbines. Since then the company totalizes more than 2000 references of equipment for micro and small hydro plants. The factory is located in the city of Estrela, State of Rio Grande do Sul and the company has been renamed MECAMIDI Wirz. An important modernization program of the factory then took place by increasing the workshop area and by adding numerical control machining centers.
Activities include the supply of hydraulic turbines, butterfly valves, trashracks, gates and penstocks, as well as the supply complete electromechanical equipment “water-to-wire turn-key” packages with associated field services.
MECAMIDI in Brazil has high qualified technical and administrative professional team and traditional manufacturing experience at competitive costs. Counting with a modern engineering design technology, MECAMIDI is an efficient and committed partner for the development of Micro, Small and Medium Hydro Plants.
