Terna S.A., the construction branch of the Gekterna Group, has chosen Andritz to supply electromechanical equipment for the Amfilochia pumped storage complex in Central Greece. The project represents the country’s most substantial grid energy storage investment and is poised to play a crucial role in the shift towards cleaner energy sources.

Upon completion and commencement of operations, the Amfilochia complex is expected to boast a total installed capacity of 680MW for generation and 730MW for pumping. The power plant aims to produce approximately 816 GWh of clean and sustainable electrical energy annually.

Andritz’s involvement in the Amfilochia project encompasses the design, manufacture, supervision of erection, and commissioning of six reversible pump-turbine generator units. The scope also includes various associated auxiliaries and ancillary equipment, governors, excitation and protection systems, main inlet valves, draft tube gates, and digital services.
