Alstom to equip Norway hydropower plant
Alstom will supply control systems and balance of plant equipment for Tysso II hydropower plant, Norway
Alstom signed a contract with Statkraft for the supply of new control systems and balance of plant equipment for the Tysso II hydropower plant in Skjeggedal in the southwestern part of Norway.
The contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of new equipment (control systems, station transformers, local distribution systems, circuit breakers and 72 kV cabling to the two units).
With this project, which is due to be completed in 2016 for unit 1 and in 2017 for unit 2, Alstom maintains its position as one of the leading equipment suppliers in the competitive Norwegian hydropower market.
Through this project, Statkraft will secure a more reliable operation of the Tysso II power plant that was built and commissioned in 1967, where Alstom delivered the original generator equipment.
