Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz/Vienna, March 19, 2014.  ANDRITZ HYDRO, part of
international technology Group ANDRITZ, has received an order from the utility
company Lyse Produksjon AS to supply the electromechanical equipment for the new
Lysebotn II hydropower station, Norway. The order value amounts to approximately
40 million euros. Commissioning is scheduled for spring 2018.

The scope of supply includes two high-pressure Francis turbines (185 megawatts
each), two generator units, hydraulic steelwork, and steel linings. Due to the
favorable reservoir situation, the generating units for this underground
hydropower station are designed for frequent start/stop to optimize energy
production. The technological competence of ANDRITZ HYDRO to cope with the
extremely high head of 665 meters was decisive in the award of this order.

Lysebotn II will replace the existing Lysebotn hydropower plant and increase the
annual energy production by 14% to reach 1.5 terawatt-hours.
