SAINT-ETIENNE, France 4/12/12 (PennWell) -- The town of Saint-Etienne has awarded a contract worth about US$870,000 to SPIE Sud Est and Hydreo mandataire Sud Est for work on Lavalette Dam.

Bids for the project were solicited in December 2011.

The companies will install a new Francis turbine-generator, valve, control panel and 400-kVA interconnection at the 97-year-old facility.

Utility Electricite de France also uses the dam to divert water to its Versilhac and Chapelette hydropower plants.
