  • Andritz to add 38.5-MW unit to 105-MW Iffezheim on Rhine

    Project operator Rheinkraftwerk Iffezheim GmbH awarded a contract to Andritz Hydro to supply electro-mechanical equipment for a new Unit 5, expanding the 105-MW Iffezheim hydroelectric project on the Rhine River.

    German utility EnBW, which jointly owns Rheinkraftwerk Iffezheim with Electricite de France, had issued several solicitations seeking various equipment to expand Iffezheim. (HNN 3/21/07)

    Andritz said April 29 the 25 million euro (US$33.3 million) order calls for a new 38.5-MW bulb-type turbine-generator with a 6.8-meter-diameter runner. When work is complete in 2011, the unit would increase Iffezheim to 143.5 MW, making it the largest hydropower plant on the Rhine.

    The new unit is to increase total project annual generation to 860 million kilowatt-hours from 740 million kWh.

    Iffezheim has four turbine-generators operating with flows of 275 cms each and a head of 10 meters.
