Company Information


Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz/Vienna, March 21, 2012.  International technology Group
ANDRITZ has received an order - awarded to a consortium led by ANDRITZ HYDRO -
from Kalehan Enerji Üretim ve Ticaret A.S. to supply and install
electromechanical equipment for the Beyhan-1 hydropower plant, Turkey. The order
