Andritz Hydro was selected to supply the electromechanical equipment for the Santa Teresa hydropower station in Peru, owned by Luz del Sur.
The new underground powerhouse with a water head of 188 m will use the tailwater from the Machu Picchu hydropower station nearby and will have a total output of 98.5 MW. Andritz Hydro will supply design engineering, delivery, installation and commissioning of two Francis turbines, governors, generators, as well as protection and control systems.
Commissioning of the project is scheduled for mid-2014.
