Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, September 21, 2011. ANDRITZ HYDRO has received an
order from ÇETIN ENERJI A.S., a subsidiary of Norway's state owned electric
utility company Statkraft, to supply the electromechanical equipment for the
Çetin Hydropower Project in Turkey. The order value for ANDRITZ HYDRO is more
