Vietnam - Chau Thang

In February 2015, ANDRITZ HYDRO’s Compact Hydro business division made a breakthrough in Vietnam with low head turbines.

ANDRITZ HYDRO India signed a contract with Prime Que Phong JSC for the supply, supervision of installation, and commissioning of two vertical Kaplan units for the Chau Thang hydropower plant in Vietnam. The total installed capacity will be 14 MW.

HPP Chau Thang is located on the Quang River in the communes of Chau Thang and Que Son, some 330 km north of the capital Hanoi. The project is scheduled to be put into commercial operation in 2016.

This is the first low head Kaplan turbine supplied out of India and an important success for ANDRITZ HYDRO in this region, as the range of required turbine types in Vietnam is now completely covered.
