Kavak - Turkey

In April 2016, ANDRITZ HYDRO received an order for two horizontal Francis turbines and electrical power systems for the Kavak hydropower plant, located in the city of Arhavi in Turkey’s Northeastern Art­vin province.

The order was placed by Arhavi Elektrik, part of the MNG Group of  Companies, for which ANDRITZ HYDRO has already successfully executed two hydropower projects – HPP Aralık and HPP Sukenarı.

ANDRITZ HYDRO won the contract after an international tendering process. With the scope of supply including design, manufacturing, testing, supply, transportation, installation, and commissioning, the turbines and related equipment will be supplied by ANDRITZ HYDRO France. Electrical power systems, turbine spiral case, and draft tube as well as installation of all electro-mechanical equipment will be delivered by ANDRITZ HYDRO Turkey.

The project is expected to see commercial operations within the second half of 2017.
