Company Information

Graz - October 31, 2017. International technology group ANDRITZ has received a
contract from SaskPower, the leading utility company in the Canadian province of
Saskatchewan, to refurbish the E.B. Campbell hydroelectric power station on the
Saskatchewan River. The contract value amounts to over 90 million euros.

ANDRITZ will refurbish six of the eight units at the power station, which was
originally commissioned in 1963. The other two units were already refurbished by
ANDRITZ eight years ago. The scope of work includes model testing and the
replacement of six Francis turbine generator sets, including auxiliaries as well
as mechanical and electrical balance of plant. The Francis runners will have a
diameter of 4 meters and generate 35 MW each at a rated head of 32 m. The first
unit will be dismantled in August 2019 and put back into operation in July 2020.
The remaining five units will follow at a rate of one per year until 2025.

This is the biggest hydropower refurbishment contract to date for ANDRITZ in
Canada and once again strengthens ANDRITZ's favorable market position in the
large Canadian hydropower market.
