Passion for Hydro
All employees at ANDRITZ share the same core values that define how we act and what we stand for.
We love what we do. Our ability to get the best out of ourselves and our technology is what makes us stand out. Times and technologies change, but our passion is always there.
This picture gallery shows photos of our passion for Hydro, taken by our employees worldwide expressing their motivation and dedication to work. We are proud to share them with you.
"Symmetry" - Sometimes you have to look at the symmetry of the installations to discover the beauty of technology. For the HPP Kaunertal we have delivered new generators and were responsible for the renewal of the penstocks.
The exact work of the on-site staff is essential for smooth installation of the equipment. Precesion is key to a successful installation. This picture was taken when the rotor at HPP Sinop, Mato Grosso, Brazil was assembled.
Working on-site under all circumstances and weather conditions ensures the accurate execution of the project. The picture emphasizes the absolute readiness and motivation of our staff to move the project forward. For the pumped storage power plant Gouvaes in Portugal, we are supplying not only the entire electro-mechanical equipment, but also the penstocks including the bifurcators with a total weight of 12,000t ons and a length of 2,500 m.
The understanding and cooperation of the people involved in a project on site is essential for the success of the whole project. This picture of the handshake of the civil company and ANDRITZ people was taken during the visit of the Prime Minister of Nepal to the site of Upper Tamakoshi (6 x 76.5 MW) hydropower plant in Nepal.
“Watch the Quality”, Flatness test of runner in our workshop at ANDRITZ Graz, Austria, where this runner was manufactured and tested. The runners were destined for the pumped storage power plant Obervermuntwerk II in Vorarlberg, Austria, which we have successfully commissioned in 2018. (2 x 190 MW).
Water storage is an effective way to store water for the generation of electricity for peak load periods. Tsankov Kamak in Bulgaria is a strategically important hydropower plant with storage capability and a total capacity of 86 MW. We have supplied electro-mechanical equipment for Austria’s first joint implementation project according to the Kyoto protocol. Since commissioning in 2008 Tsankov Kamakis producing 185 GWh/year of clean and sustainable energy for the Bulgarian grid.
