Renace 4 - Guatemala
ANDRITZ HYDRO received an order from Cobra Infraestructuras Hidráulicas, S.A. for the supply, transport, erection, and commissioning of two 28 MW Pelton turbines for the Renace 4 hydropower plant In March 2016.
The project, located on the lower Canlich River, is part of the Renace Hydroelectric Complex, which – together with Renace 1, 2 and 3 – will become the largest hydroelectric complex in Guatemala, with a total installed capacity of 300 MW.
The contractual scope for ANDRITZ HYDRO includes two six-nozzle, vertical shaft turbines, hydraulic power units, a cooling water system, penstock connection pipes, main inlet
valves, and generators. The manufacturing and pre-assembly of the main turbine components will be done in ANDRITZ HYDRO’s workshop in Spain. Start of commercial operations is scheduled for February 2018.
After the successful execution of previous orders for the 120 MW HPP Renace 2 in 2012 and 66 MW Renace 3 in 2014, this new order further strengthens ANDRITZ HYDRO’s strong position in the Guatemalan hydropower market.
