With largely undeveloped river catchments, Southeast Europe represents a significant proportion of untapped European hydropower potential. The European Union commissioned a regional hydropower masterplan for the region, aiming to define how to develop the hydropower potential in a way that balances energy generation, flood protection and ecological concerns over the years to come. These perspectives require state-of-the-art technology and solutions, ANDRTZ can provide.
ANDRITZ has been active in the Southeast European energy market for more than 90 years More than 220 units with a total capacity of 7,400 MW were delivered across the region, ample proof of the strong and long-term presence of ANDRITZ in Southeast Europe.
