Scotland - Cia Aig

In April 2014, RWE Innogy UK awarded a contract to ANDRITZ HYDRO Germany for the delivery of the complete electromechanical equipment for the new Cia Aig hydroelectric scheme in Scotland.

The run-of-river power plant is located on the Abhainn Chia-aig River, approximately 15 km north of Fort William and will be constructed with an intake weir and a 3.2 km of buried pipeline.

The scope of supply for ANDRITZ HYDRO comprises two vertical five-nozzle Pelton turbines, two synchronous generators, hydraulic pressure units, main inlet valves, as well as the complete electrical control equipment, high-voltage switchgear, transformer, erection, and commissioning.

Following orders from RWE Innogy UK in 2009 and 2010 for HPP Selset and HPP Blackrock, HPP Cia Aig marks another success for Compact Hydro in the United Kingdom.
