Alstom has been contracted by Statkraft to supply control systems and balance of plant equipment for Norway’s Tysso II hydropower plant.

Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will supply, install and commission new control systems, station transformers, local distribution systems, circuit breakers and 72 kV cabling for the plant’s two units.

The project is expected to be completed in 2016 for unit 1 and in 2017 for unit 2.

Located in Skjeggedal in the southwest part of the country, the plant currently features original generator equipment supplied by Alstom in 1967.  

“We are proud to reconfirm our good relationship with our customer Statkraft,” said Eric Staurset, Alstom’s country president, Norway. “This project endorses our strategy to support customers with a full services and retrofit offering to secure operational reliability and to optimize their asset management throughout the plant’s lifespan.”  

Alstom has been present in Norway’s hydropower market since 1873.
