MJ2, of La Cavalerie, France, received a contract valued at 1.36 million euros (US$1.84 million). It is to supply a turbine-generator, controls, oil and grease, manuals, operating instructions, maintenance, and training.

Now that electro-mechanical equipment is selected, the city plans to seek bids for civil engineering, gates, and auxiliary equipment to be installed at the existing dam.
