In the October 2011 issue of Hydro Review, Russell Ray reported in the feature “Canada’s Hydropower Boom” that General Electric Hydro was awarded a C$46.2 million contract for the design, manufacture and supply of the three turbines and generators used in the 200-MW Wuskwatim Project. While that was the original case, the units were eventually designed and manufactured by Andritz Hydro.
In regards to the Lower Mattagami Hydropower Complex, Andritz Hydro was awarded the contract by Kiewit Alarie a Partnership (on behalf of Ontario Power Generation Inc.) for the model testing, design, manufacturing and installation of the turbines and generators for the Little Long, Harmon and Kipling power plants. Delivery of the Mattagami River project turbine components has been initiated since the original article’s publication date.
In the December 2011 issue, in the feature “Alaska’s Untapped Potential,” we failed to report that the Compact Hydro Division of Andritz Hydro provided the turbine and generator for The Upper and Lower Bear projects in British Columbia, Canada. The 195-MW Forrest Kerr run-of-the-river station was also omitted from the list of new developments currently in progress throughout the U.S. and Canada. Andritz Hydro is providing nine units for Forrest Kerr.
The editors of Hydro Review regret the omissions.
