Imtech Infra b.v. of the Netherlands has received a contract from N.V. Nuon Duurzame Energie to replace controls of the 10-MW Maurik and 14-MW Alphen hydroelectric projects in the Netherlands.
The contract, worth 1.137 million euros (US$1.45 million), calls for Imtech to replace the automation and control system of the two hydropower plants, each of which has fully automated powerhouses with four horizontal Kaplan turbines. Imtech was chosen October 11 over one other bidder.
Maurik was built in 1988 at the Amerongen flood control dam in Nederrijn. Alphen was built in 1989 at the Lith flood control dam in Maas.
