Andritz Hydro has been contracted by Energie Steiermark to supply the electro-mechanical equipment for a new 18MW hydropower plant to be built in the Puntigam district of Graz, Austria. 

Andritz will deliver two bulb turbines (capacity: 2 x 9 MW) with a runner diameter of 3600mm each, including speed controllers as well as generators and excitation systems. The power plant is designed for a gross head of 9.65m and a flow rate of 200m³/sec, and will be equipped with a fish-ladder.

A major part of the equipment will be produced in Andritz Hydro’s production facilities in Austria, mainly at its generator manufacturing plant in Weiz.

Commissioning is planned for the first half of 2019.
