Andritz to equip Turkey’s 265.5-MW Alkumru

Andritz Hydro has received an order from Limak Energy to supply electro-mechanical equipment to the 265.5-MW Alkumru hydroelectric project on Turkey’s Dicle River.

Andritz said February 2 that the 55 million euro (US$70.7 million) contract includes three 88.5-MW vertical Francis turbines, generators, and complete electro-mechanical equipment.

Alkumru is to begin commercial operation in early 2011 in Turkey’s Southeast Anatolia Region. It is to generate 900 gigawatt-hours per year.

Andritz said Limak Energy, a unit of Limak Group, is one of the large private energy suppliers in Turkey, focusing on renewable energy from hydropower in the course of privatization of Turkey’s energy sector.
