Andritz Hydro has been awarded a contract to supply, install and commission three 235 MW ampere generators for the 636-MW Upper Kelekoy hydropower project.
The order is worth about US$40.5 million, Andritz (LES: 0MJZ) said.
Upper Kelekoy (also spelled “Kalekoy”) is being developed by the Kalehan Enerji consortium and will be located on Turkey’s Murat River.
HydroWorld.com reported in August that Kalehan Enerji had awarded a contract to Voith Hydro supply three 202 MW Francis turbines for the project.
The hydroelectric plant is the second in a cascade of four planned for the river. Andritz Hydro was previously awarded a contract supply equipment for the 560-MW Beyhan-1 project, which is the cascade’s first.
