French engineer seeks replacement turbines for 3.2-MW Mesce hydro project

Hydropower engineer Hydrostadium seeks bids to supply two replacement turbines for the 3.2-MW Mesce hydroelectric project at Tende in France’s Alpes Maritimes Department. Bids are due June 15.

Hydrostadium, a subsidiary of Electricite de France (EDF), took bids May 11 to supply gates to the Saint-Pierre-en-Faucigny hydro project and turbines to the 1.86-MW Hautefage hydro project. It also took bids in February to supply a trashrack and downstream fish passage at the 8-MW Pebernat hydroelectric project and in December 2014 to renovate the command and control systems of six hydroelectric projects operated by EDF on the lower Maulde River in France.

Hydrostadium now seeks bids to supply a 1.8-MW Francis turbine-generator and a 1.4-MW Pelton unit for EDF’s Mesce project. Work is to include design, manufacture, delivery, assembly, testing and commission of the units and related equipment.
