French engineer seeks cross-flow turbine to reactivate 1-MW Brides-les-Bains hydro project

Hydropower engineer Hydrostadium seeks bids to supply a cross-flow turbine-generator for reactivation of the 1-MW Brides-les-Bains hydropower project in France’s Savoie Department. Bids are due September 10.

Hydrostadium, a subsidiary of Electricite de France (EDF), took bids in June to supply two replacement turbines for the 3.2-MW Mesce hydroelectric project in Alpes Maritimes Department. It took bids in May for gates for the Saint-Pierre-en-Faucigny hydro project and turbines for the 1.86-MW Hautefage hydro project.
