Russian equipment supplier OMZ Group reports its IZ-ZMK unit has signed a contract with hydropower equipment builder OJSC Power Machines to supply components for hydroelectric projects in Mexico and Russia.

OMZ, the Uralmash-Izhora Group, said IZ-ZMK is to supply metal components for rotors and stators for the 750-MW La Yesca hydropower project on Mexico’s Santiago River (HNN 3/16/09) and the 3,000-MW Boguchanskaya hydro project on Russia’s Angara River. (HNN 8/20/08)

IZ-ZMK manufactured five analogous sets of components for hydropower plants in cooperation with Power Machines in 2008.
