Andritz VA Tech Hydro Receives Major Orders from India
Graz, Austria, 19 December 2007 -- Andritz VA TECH HYDRO, a member of technology group Andritz, received orders for hydropower station equipment in the amount of approximately EUR 210 million via its Indian affiliates VA TECH HYDRO India Pvt. Ltd., Bhopal, and VA TECH ESCHER WYSS Flovel Ltd., Prithla, thus further extending its market position in the fast-growing Indian hydropower market.

For Teesta Urja Limited, Gurgaon, New Delhi, India, Andritz VA TECH HYDRO will supply the complete electromechanical equipment for six vertical Pelton machine sets for Stage III of Teesta Hydropower Station. The total nominal output will be 1200 MW. The six sets will go online by August 2011.

Jaiprakash Industries placed an order with Andritz VA TECH HYDRO to supply four erosion-resistant Francis turbines with a total output of 1200 MW for Karcham Wangtoo Hydropower Station on the river Satluj. These four units will also go on-stream by August 2011.

Both the Satluj and the Teesta rivers carry large amounts of sand from the Himalayas during the rainy season. Due to its high quartz content, this sand can cause major erosion damage to the turbine parts. Therefore, erosion-resistance was given special attention in the turbine design. In addition, all turbine runner surfaces in contact with water will be provided with a very hard, special ceramic coating.
