Andritz Hydro awarded contract to refurbish hydropower plant

In early February 2011, the US Army Corps of Engineers in Portland awarded ANDRITZ HYDRO the contract to refurbish the Hills Creek hydropower plant in Oakridge, Oregon. This order includes model testing, supply of two new vertical Francis runners (output 16 MW each), hydromechanical equipment, rewind of both generators, as well as refurbishment of additional power plant equipment.

With over 170 years of experience and more than 30,000 turbines installed totaling approximately 400,000 MW output, ANDRITZ HYDRO is a leader in the world market for hydraulic power generation. The company offers a complete product portfolio including turbines, generators, and additional equipment of all types and sizes.
