Andritz VA Tech Hydro to refurbish Canada's 162-MW Aubrey Falls

Hydro operator Brookfield Renewable Power Inc. has awarded a contract to Andritz VA Tech Hydro Ltd. to refurbish generating units at the 162-MW Aubrey Falls hydroelectric project on Ontario's Mississagi River.

Andritz VA Tech Hydro Ltd., the former GE Hydro, received a C$9.2 million (US$7.45 million) contract for supply and installation of new stator windings and refurbishment of field windings and poles for two 87-megavolt-ampere generators at Aubrey Falls, which began operation in 1930 east of Sault Ste. Marie. The first unit is to return to operation by May 2009.

Andritz VA Tech Hydro said decisive factors in the contract award were the special winding bar design of the company's shop in Peterborough, Ontario, advanced winding technology in the company's Lachine, Quebec, plant, and short delivery time.
