Pac Ma HPP, Lai Chau Province
The contract for this new hydropower plant, which is the northernmost cascade in Song Da (Black River) basin, comprises the supply of four Bulb turbines of 35 MW each. In addition, turbine governors, generators, excitation and control system also form part of the supply contract. Commissioning is scheduled for the first half of 2021. After completion, Pac Ma will be the largest Bulb-type hydropower plant in South-East Asia.
Thuong Kontum HPP, Kontum and Binh Dinh Provinces
ANDRITZ Hydro has been supplying complete electro-mechanical equipment to the highest head project in Vietnam, including two 110 MW Pelton turbines with speed governors, generators with digital excitation, and auxiliary systems. This hydropower plant will be commissioned in third quarter of 2020 and will generate about 1,000 GWh per year.
Nhan Hac HPP, Nghe An Province
This twin cascade hydropower plant is providing Vietnam’s province with peak power to improve grid stability of the regional network while fully utilizes the available water resources. In May 2016, ANDRITZ Hydro received a contract for the supply of two Francis units (each of 27.5 MW capacity) for Nhan Hac A powerhouse and one Kaplan unit of 4 MW nominal capacity for Nhan Hac B lower cascade, with all auxiliary equipment and accessories, including design, manufacturing, transport and commissioning. Commissioning of all three units successfully took place in Summer 2018, meeting all contractual and technical requirements to the client full satisfaction. Nhan Hac A units are the largest compact size in the country.
Hoa Binh HPP, Hoa Binh Province
In October 2015, ANDRITZ Hydro received a contract from the Vietnam Electricity (EVN) for the design, equipment supply and technical services for the upgrade. Denoted as “Project: upgrade of control, protection, signal and measurement system for eight generating units of Hoa Binh Hydropower Plant”, the project scheduled an execution time of two years. This equated to a ‘four-units-per-year’ repair cycle ideally suited to operating regime of this large multi-purpose strategic dam. Site works began in February 2017 and the last two paired units were completed in December 2018, 30 days ahead of the contractual schedule. Throughout the project all items were properly deployed as per schedule and in a safely and timely way were put into operation.
Today, the 8x240 MW Hoa Binh Hydropower Plant uses ANDRITZ Hydro’s latest technologies to increase plant reliability and availability and, together with favorable hydrological conditions, this edge helped the plant achieve its highest ever annual power production last year – reaching 12,290 GWh in 2018. Hoa Binh HPP continues to operate smoothly and safely, and will do so for years to come.
