Carema - Italy

Only 11 months after contract signing, the Italian hydropower plant Carema was successfully commissioned in August 2016. ANDRITZ HYDRO received the contract for the supply of electro-mechanical equipment for the hydropower project by COGEIS S.p.A in 2015.

In 2010 ANDRITZ HYDRO began rehabilitating the Tavagnasco hydro­power plant for the same customer. HPP Carema, located 60 km east of the city of Aosta in the region of Pie­monte, is located close to this project. It utilizes the flow of the Dora Baltea River and the environmental flow from the intake of the Tavagnasco hydropower plant.

During the execution of this project ANDRITZ HYDRO equipped a greenfield powerhouse with one 1,185 kW ECOBULB* turbine, as well as a permanent magnet generator, mechanical auxiliaries, electrical power systems, and automation.
