Andritz VA TECH HYDRO got another refurbishment contract in Italy

ANDRITZ VA TECH HYDRO, through its affiliate VA TECH Escher Wyss S.r.I. in Schio / Italy, was awarded another contract for a hydro power plant refurbishment from the utility ENDESA Italia S.p.A.. After three orders awarded in 2007 (modernization of the hydro power stations Galleto, Baschi and Alviano), ENDESA Italia has now assigned the modernization of the so called “Monte Sant’Angelo”section in the power plant Galleto. The contract volume amounts to approx. 26 Mio. €.

Monte Sant’Angelo will receive two vertical Francis turbines and generators with an output of about 87 MW each. Furthermore the delivery of new hydraulic and digital governor systems, static excitation, complete plant automation as well as a SCADA system is included. The completion of the project is scheduled for the year 2010.

Due to the introduction of the energy stock market and the "green certificates", modernization of hydro power plants has become economically attractive in Italy. In the last few months ANDRITZ VA TECH HYDRO received several orders for various turbine types.
