ANDRITZ to supply electromechanical equipment for the Lysebotn II hydropower station, Norway


ANDRITZ HYDRO, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, has received an order from the utility company Lyse Produksjon AS to supply the electromechanical equipment for the new Lysebotn II hydropower station, Norway.

 The order value amounts to approximately 40 million euros. Commissioning is scheduled for spring 2018.

The scope of supply includes two high-pressure Francis turbines (185 megawatts each), two generator units, hydraulic steelwork, and steel linings. Due to the favorable reservoir situation, the generating units for this underground hydropower station are designed for frequent start/stop to optimize energy production. The technological competence of ANDRITZ HYDRO to cope with the extremely high head of 665 meters was decisive in the award of this order.´

Lysebotn II will replace the existing Lysebotn hydropower plant and increase the annual energy production by 14% to reach 1.5 terawatt-hours.
