ANDRITZ was selected by Hydro-Quebec for the re-equipment of potentially all fourteen 54-MW turbine generator units at the Carillon generating station located on the Ottawa River in Canada. The order for supply and installation of the first set of six turbine-generator units was awarded on September 30, 2020. The contract encompasses complete re-equipping of six units with new generators, speed governors and turbines. ANDRITZ is responsible for design, manufacture, transportation, assembly, testing and commissioning of all equipment. Completion of this project with top-tier ANDRITZ equipment will have a significant impact on keeping Quebec’s energy supply stable and secure for decades to come.

ANDRITZ has received a contract from Greenko Energy Private Limited, an independent Indian power producer, for the supply of electro-mechanical equipment for the 1,200-MW Pinnapuram pumped storage plant in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Pinnapuram will be the largest pumped storage power plant in India and will be part of the first integrated renewable energy storage project combining electrical energy production based on photovoltaic solar, wind, and pumped storage. The contract includes design, manufacture, supply, transportation, erection, testing, and commissioning of four 240-MW units, two 120-MW reversible pump units, main inlet valves, and associated auxiliaries. This order not only confirms ANDRITZ’ strong position in the Indian hydro market, but also demonstrates the value of pumped storage technology, which plays an important role in providing grid stability to cope with volatile solar and wind power supplies.
