LIBSON, Portugal 11/30/11 (PennWell) — A consortium that includes Andritz Hydro has received an order to supply equipment for the 234-MW Foz Tua pumped-storage power station.

Equipment to be provided includes two 120-MW reversible pump-turbines, cylindrical gates, motor-generators, governors and control systems, hydromechanical equipment, and auxiliary systems, according to a press release.
