ANDRITZ Hydro received a contract by Chiora LLC for the supply of electro-mechanical equipment for the new 17-MW Chiora hydropower plant in Georgia. Chiora LLC is an industrial holding with a diversified portfolio including businesses in agriculture, real estate and wine production. Since 2015, the company is also active in the hydropower generation business.

The studies to build a new hydropower plant called “Chiora HPP” were started back in 2017. Given our strong position and local presence in the Georgian market, Chiora Hesi LLC engaged discussions with ANDRITZ at a very early stage of the project development. ANDRITZ fully supported the customer’s efforts with technical solutions and proposals, which at the end lead us to be awarded with the final contract of electro-mechanical supply.

The scope of the contract comprises two vertical 8.5-MW Pelton units including turbines, butterfly inlet valves, synchronous generators, cooling water system, automation and complete electrical power systems up to the step-up transformer. Installation and commissioning of the entire equipment are completing the order.

The contract will be executed by ANDRITZ Hydro Turkey and ANDRITZ Hydro Germany.

This order is another success of ANDRITZ showing its competences and quality in the small hydropower segment.
