Company Information

Graz - July 28, 2021. International technology group ANDRITZ has received an
order from First Hydro Company, UK, covering a contract for the supply of six
new spherical valves for the Dinorwig pumped storage plant in Llanberis, North
Wales, United Kingdom. First Hydro Company is owned 75% by ENGIE and 25% by
Brookfield. The first two valves will be installed in mid-2023, and the other
four in mid-2025.

ANDRITZ's scope encompasses the design, manufacture, supply, installation, and
commissioning of six spherical valves with a diameter of 2,500 millimeters and a
pressure of 60 bar, including governors and the fire protection system.

With a total installed capacity of about 1,728 MW, Dinorwig is one of the
largest pumped storage plants in Europe and provides balancing services
including reserve and response. At peak, water flows through the turbines at 360
m3 per second - the equivalent volume of a typical 25-meter length swimming

The new ANDRITZ spherical valves will contribute to maintaining the overall
availability of the entire plant, which has been in operation for nearly 40
years. Dinorwig plays a vital role in the safeguarding of Great Britain's
national grid.

First Hydro placed great confidence in ANDRITZ as a recognized worldwide
specialist for spherical valves. ANDRITZ is proud to be part of the
refurbishment project for Dinorwig power station.
