Successful example of cooperative approach

Kamolot, Uzbekistan

In 2019, ANDRITZ received an order from the Chinese enterprise group Dongfang Electric International Corporation (DEC) for the supply of the complete electro-mechanical equipment for the Kamolot hydropower plant in Uzbekistan. DEC is acting as the main contractor for the end customer, JSC Uzbekgidroenergo, an Uzbek state-run utility.


The contract of supply comprised four bevel gear turbines with a runner diameter of 2,150 mm and a rated power output of 2.13 MW each, together with synchronous generators, hydraulic power units, cooling water system, as well as a package of controls and automation.

The installation and commissioning of the four units took place amid global safety constraints and travel restrictions during a period when mobility was strongly influenced by the global fight against Covid 19.

Manfred Motz, Head of Compact Hydro stated: “I am extremely happy about this success as it shows our ability to deliver and execute projects even under harsh conditions. This is a good example for our cooperative approach to projects – we work hand in hand with our customers.”
