  • Alstom Hydro to equip Brazil's 3,150-MW Santo Antonio

    Alstom Hydro has received a 500 million euro (US$708 million) contract to supply electro-mechanical and hydro-mechanical equipment to the 3,150-MW Santo Antonio hydroelectric project on the Madeira River in Brazil's Rondonia State.

    Alstom Hydro, a joint venture of Alstom of France and French conglomerate Bouygues, signed the contract with engineering-procurement-construction contractor Construtora Norberto Odebrecht.

    Alstom Hydro is to supply the project 19 bulb turbines designed for lower water head and reduced environmental effects, 22 generators, and 50 percent of the project's hydro-mechanical and lifting equipment. Santo Antonio, which has a total of 44 turbine-generators, is to be on line by mid-2012. (HNN 8/26/08)

    Alstom Hydro said it would manufacture turbines and generators at its facility in Taubate, Brazil. Hydro-mechanical and lifting equipment are to be supplied from a new factory being built at Porto Velho in Rondonia.

    Alstom Hydro and Brazil capital goods company Bardella created a 50-50 joint venture, Industria Metalurgica e Mecanica da Amazonia (IMMA), to invest 35 million euros (US$54.8 million) to build the plant in Porto Velho. Alstom had said the plant was intended to serve Santo Antonio. (HNN 7/8/08)

    Alstom and Bardella are members of the engineering-procurement-construction consortium, led by Construtora Norberto Odebrecht, that was chosen to build the project 119 kilometers from the Bolivian border.
