Alstom wins supply contract for Quebec's La Romaine 3 hydropower project

Alstom

Alstom has been awarded a contract worth more than US$87.5 million to supply equipment for the La Romaine 3 hydropower project, HydroWorld.com has learned.

The Hydro Quebec-owned project is one component of the 1,550-MW La Romaine complex, which is located on the north short of Quebec's St. Lawrence River.

Per the contract, Alstom will supply two 200-MW vertical Francis turbine generator units complete with butterfly valves and regulation systems. The company will also install and commission the equipment.

"These high-performing and reliable Francis turbines generator units for La Romaine 3 will be developed based on proven technology that has been used in other Hydro Quebec projects," Alstom vice president and general manager of North American hydro activities Claude Lambert said.

The equipment will be designed and manufactured in Alstom's North American hydro headquarters located in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec.

Alstom was previously awarded a contract to supply two 320-MW turbine units for the La Romaine 2 project in 2010, which, when combined with La Romaine 3, will account for about two-thirds of the projects total output capacity.
