Angel I and III - Peru

Generadora de Energía del Peru (Gepsa) awarded ANDRITZ HYDRO two contracts for the supply of electro-mechanical equipment for the hydropower plants Angel I and Angel III In March 2016. Both orders followed the contract for HPP Angel II, which was also awarded to ANDRITZ HYDRO.

All three hydropower plants are part of a cascade system, located in the Cara­baya Province in the south of Peru.

HPPs Angel I–III are identical and hence have the same scope of supply – combining two vertical, six-jets Pelton turbines (10 MW output each), two 11.22 MVA generators (6.6 kV each),

spherical inlet valves, hydraulic pressure units, cooling water systems, control and SCADA system, speed governor, automatic voltage regulator, and auxiliary equipment.

The supervision of erection and the commissioning are scheduled for mid-2017. With the new contracts for HPPs Angel I and III all three hydropower plants are under execution by ANDRITZ HYDRO.
