Irish utility ESB Power Generation has named Voith Siemens Hydro Kraftwerkstechnik GmbH to refurbish a generator at the 292-MW Turlough Hill pumped-storage project at Glendalough in County Wicklow, Ireland.
ESB said it awarded the contract by negotiation with Voith Siemens after a prior call for bids received no responses. It said urgency of unforeseen events also prompted the award.
In October, ESB named Voith Siemens supply replacement governors for Turlough Hill. (HNN 10/19/07)
The contract to refurbish Turlough Hill Unit 1, one of four pump-turbine units, was awarded November 9.
