ANDRITZ HYDRO first delivered equipment to West African countries in the early 1950s. Since then, more than 70 units with a total output of about 3,600 MW have been delivered to the region. The company was involved in West Africa’s most important hydropower projects, such as HPP Akosombo and Kpong in Ghana, HPP Kainji and Shiroro in Nigeria, HPP Taabo, Ayamé and San Pedro in Côte d’Ivoire, HPP Bagré in Burkina Faso, HPP Garafiri and Banea in Guinea Conakry, and HPP Contador – the only hydropower plant in São Tomé & Principe. One recent project was HPP Mount Coffee in Liberia, for which ANDRITZ HYDRO rehabilitated the hydraulic steelworks. In Senegal and Togo ANDRITZ HYDRO has supplied almost 100% of the hydropower fleet. In countries like Nigeria, Ghana and Mali, the company has supplied more than 60% of the total installed hydropower capacity.
