International technology group Andritz will supply electromechanical equipment with a total value of approximately 340 million euros (US$417.4 million) as part of the construction of the Ilisu hydropower station in Turkey, Andritz announced.
Following the temporary suspension of the supply contracts for the project, all contractual requirements for their resumption have now been met; thus, Andritz will book the order presumably in the second quarter of 2010, Andritz reported.
Andritz Hydro's scope of supply includes six Francis turbines, each with an output of 200 megawatts, six generators, additional equipment, as well as engineering services. The delivery time is seven years in total. Andritz Hydro is part of the delivery consortium led by the Turkish construction company Nurol and which includes other European and Turkish companies. Total costs of the project amount to approximately 1.1 billion euros.
Recently, The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation awarded Andritz Hydro a contract for design and supply of a replacement turbine, with an option to supply three more, at the 2,078-MW Hoover Dam hydroelectric project on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada.
