Andritz is to re-equip up to 14x54MW turbine generator units at the Carillon generating station on the Ottawa River, Canada, after being selected as exclusive partner by Hydro-Québec.

In the first phase, awarded on 30 September, Andritz will complete re-equip six units with new generators, speed governors and turbines. It will be responsible for design, manufacture, transportation, assembly, testing and commissioning of the entire equipment.

The existing units were supplied and commissioned by Andritz in the early 1960’s. This new project will span over 16 years in total, with commissioning of the last unit planned for 2036.
