Russian hydro turbine manufacturer Power Machines OJSC has signed a contract with Turkish company DSI to provide equipment for the 140-MW Kigi hydropower project.
Power Machines said it is to produce and deliver electrical and mechanical equipment for Kigi, including three 46.6 MW turbines with pre-turbine gate valves, three generators of the same capacity, switchgear, and all other equipment for the turbine hall.
Commissioning of the plant — located in Turkey’s Elazig province — is expected to take place in 2016.
The company said its participation in the project is a reflection of its continued efforts to make inroads in the Turkish market.
HydroWorld.com reported earlier this month that installation of the eighth Power Machines-manufactured unit had been completed at Russia’s Boguchanskaya hydroelectric plant.
