  • Andritz Hydro receives Muskrat Falls hydro turbine contract

    Muskrat Falls Hydropower Project

    Andritz Hydro has received an order worth more than US$170 million from Nalcor Energy to supply hydro turbines and generator units for Canada's 824-MW Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project.

    Andritz (OP: ADRZF) said the order includes four 209-MW Kaplan turbines and four synchronous generators, in addition to governors, static excitation systems, and monitoring, protection and control equipment.

    The company said commissioning is scheduled for 2017.

    The $7.4 billion Muskrat Falls hydropower plant is part of the Lower Churchill complex, which could also eventually include the 2,250-MW Gull Island project. Both would be located on the Churchill River in Labrador.

    HydroWorld.com reported that the plant received an official go-ahead from Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale in December 2012, following decades of controversy.

    Multiple studies have defended Muskrat Falls, however, as the least-cost option for future power generation.
