Andritz to supply La Coche extension

1 February 2016

Andritz Hydro is to supply a 240MW turbine generator unit for the extension of the La Coche pumped storage power station in France in a EUR 25 million deal from Electricité de France (EDF).

The new Pelton turbine, which is scheduled for start-up in 2019, completes the existing four reversible pump turbines and features extremely good part load behavior, the company said.

Due to the high sand content in the water and the resulting severe abrasion, the turbine will be given a high-grade, erosion-resistant coating that will extend its life cycle significantly.
