Company Information

Graz/Vienna, March 24, 2017.  ANDRITZ HYDRO, part of international technology 
Group ANDRITZ, was awarded a contract by state-owned utility Ukrhydroenergo 
for modernization of the Dnipro 1 hydropower station on the Dnieper River, 
Ukraine. The project is part of a rehabilitation program financed by the 
European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The contract value 
for ANDRITZ HYDRO amounts to approx. 60 million euros. Completion of the 
project is scheduled for the end of 2021.

ANDRITZ HYDRO's scope of supply includes the complete rehabilitation of 
three 75 MW Francis turbines and generators, including dismantling, supply of 
new equipment, installation, and testing. Except for the embedded parts, 
all major components will be replaced by new equipment. The modernization 
will increase the output from 64 to 75 MW and substantially enhance reliability 
and safety. A hydraulic model test will allow optimum performance of the new 
turbines to be defined and demonstrated within the geometric conditions of the 
existing powerhouse. 

Ukrhydroenergo owns and operates nine hydropower stations with a total of 
102 turbine generator sets and a capacity of 5,744 MW on the rivers Dnieper 
and Dniester. After completion of this rehabilitation program, the company's 
contribution to the country's electricity supply will be more than 15%. 
Dnipro 1 was the first hydropower plant on the Dnieper River and was built 
between 1927 and 1932. 

ANDRITZ HYDRO has been present in the Ukraine for a long time; the present 
project further strengthens ANDRITZ HYDRO's position in this growing hydropower 
market.
