This award is an outstanding achievement and ANDRITZ HYDRO Indonesia will strive to continue providing excellent services to all of its customers for the benefit of the people of Indonesia.
Customer Day Tbilisi, Georgia
ANDRITZ HYDRO has been highly successful in the Georgian market, winning several projects in recent years.
To further strengthen its role as a leading system provider for electro-mechanical hydropower equipment in Georgia, a “Customer Day Georgia” was held for the third time in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi in June 2015.
Georgia currently produces 75% of its electrical energy (2,700 MW) from hydropower, with plans to raise this share to a full 100% in the future. In view of these medium- and long-term goals, and inspired by the excellent experience and feedback from the previous two Customer Days, the third edition of the “Customer Day Georgia” once again was a great success.
It was attended by 150 participants representing all ANDRITZ HYDRO partners in the Georgian hydropower market, including local customers, officials from the energy ministry, project developers, planners, and experts from engineering offices and financial institutions. Deputy Minister of Energy, Ilia Eloshvili, opened the Customer Day with a keynote speech.
The central part of the event was dedicated to customers reporting on their current project experience with ANDRITZ HYDRO in Georgia. Specialist lectures on the topics of new facilities, small hydropower, automation, and financing underscored the wide range of ANDRITZ HYDRO’s product and service portfolio and emphasized its role as a leading system provider for electro-mechanical hydropower equipment in Georgia.
