Company Information

Graz/Vienna, February 3, 2016.  ANDRITZ HYDRO, part of international technology 
Group ANDRITZ, has received an order from Daelim Lotte Joint Venture to supply 
the electromechanical equipment, hydraulic steel structures, penstocks, and 
control systems for the Gulpur hydropower station, Pakistan. Start-up is 
scheduled for mid-2019. The order value amounts to approximately 65 million 
ANDRITZ HYDRO is to supply two turbine generator sets, each with an output 
of 52 megawatts, for a head of 57 meters to the new hydropower station on the 
Poonch River in northwestern Pakistan. Due to the high sand content in the 
river water and the resulting severe abrasion, the Kaplan turbines will be 
protected by the highly resistant ANDRITZ HYDRO SXH™ coating. Another special 
feature: The runner blades and guide vanes of the turbines can be replaced 
quickly and easily without disassembling the turbines.
